This is a Savannah Sparrow. This is a newish bird to me. I’ve heard of Savannah Sparrows but I never expected to photograph one. In fact, when I took this pic, I thought it was a Song Sparrow. However, when I was looking over my photos, I had second thoughts. There was something about the face that didn’t seem right. I couldn’t place my finger on it, but I knew who could. I sent this photo to my friend Daryl Ramrattan. Daryl is another wildlife photographer that I’ve known for a couple of years. More than that, he is one of the best birders I know. Daryl identified this bird as a Savannah Sparrow, which, no lie, kinda made my day. I had another sparrow under my vest, except I really don’t. I don’t think I could really ever identify this bird or another one like it as a Savannah Sparrow. Luckily, I still have Daryl on speed dial. It’s good to have friends. JK.
