Title: FOY - White-throated sparrow
Post by: Shortsighted on April 20, 2022, 05:34:37 pm
This morning at about 7 o'clock I had a FOY crisp-looking WT sparrow in backyard. Mostly hid in what is left of a shrub that has been devastated by a rabbit.

That is not a happy sparrow.

This morning, I saw a bird pulling something on the branch, through binoculars I saw it was a female house finch collecting building material. She got a large piece only to be blown away when she was trying to get it organized in her beak. I felt so bad, but she carried on her day like nothing happened. I envy birds.
