My Weekly Bird ABC

The 'L' birds are not too plentiful,but I found a few to share with you.
This little fellow is a Least Flycatcher.
If this is not correct,please let me know,as I have trouble identifying the Flycatchers.
Jake was fortunate last summer to be able to capture this Lark Sparrow. Another view of the Lark Sparrow with it's distinct markings.
The last bird for today is a Lincoln Sparrow.We used to think that this bird was
almost afraid of it's own shadow.He never stayed out in the open for long,
preferring the underbrush area.
Last summer we had several good chances to photograph this Sparrow.
Here he is again at our small pool,waiting to get a drink or take a bath.

  2. You got some great 'L' bird photos in this post. Most of these are new to me (at least their names are) so once again you've given me a good education.

  3. I like your bird pictures! There are so many little 'sparrow' looking birds, its hard for me to identify them. I don't think we have any of your "L" birds in this area.

  7. Great pictures of the sparrows. I would like to add to your saying at the bottom.

    God's laughter is heard in the song of the birds and his breath is felt in the wind.

  10. I would love to see and photograph a lark sparrow and a least flycatcher some day. I've seen a Lincoln sparrow visit my yard now and then. My daughter has managed to capture it digitally. I have yet to do the same. Great job Ruth. I trust you and Jake are thoroughly enjoying your new lenses.

  13. You just amaze me, Ruth, with your knowledge of birds. Some of them look so much alike especially some of the sparrows. Beautiful pictures, you and Jake must have infinite patience to capture them.
