Nick the Clay colored Sparrow is amazing.I know how to tough these little guys are to approach.You must have been able to get fairly close considering the detail on the bird.As always you make the challenging shots look easy.:)

Thanks Rock, that little Clay-colored Sparrow hopped up right in front of me when I was imitating its call to get his attention :-) I had to be very quick before he realized I wasn't one of his own kind and shot off... :-)

ALL of your photos are amazing! I am wondering what kind of lens you use for the birding?
Keep up the great work... I'll be back!
