White-throated Sparrow

Thursday, February 6, 2020,

This is a White-throated Sparrow I saw at Morton Refuge. These are amongst my favorite birds. Don’t get me wrong. I like them all but this is the bird that first sparked my interest in Audubon and birding. These beautiful yet hardy birds are a reason to welcome Old Man Winter. I love the white bib, the striped head, and that small but bright splash of yellow that says, “Yeah, I can be fancy, but I don’t need to be a show off”.  JK
