So I’m also trying to identify birds as I go. This I believe is a Baird’s Sparrow. I like the head shape on this one as it looks a bit prehistoric.
So I’m getting caught up on this weeks photos – I must admit – A finding it hard to get to the blog every day -so have been doing bulk posts on the weekend. AND not too sure about getting pics during the week. When you are at work (or commuting to work) from 5 to 5 or 6, spend an hour or so out with the cats, have to eat dinner and get ready for the next day – other than backyard pics I’m finding it hard to get out during the week. So posts may be boring – have to figure out a way around that 🙂
So this guy is a new visitor – now I’m not a bird snob, but when I first saw him I was like – oh, another sparrow – pretty but don’t need a picture – but then saw the flash of yellow over his eyes. I also found a good site (so sharing) with lots of bird pics which is how I identified this guy – https://www.flickr.com/groups/birdshare/pool/
