A White-throated Sparrow at Morton Refuge

Wednesday, March 25, 2020,

This is a White-throated Sparrow I found at Morton Refuge in Sag Harbor. I really, really like these guys. Not only are they my favorite sparrows but they are also amongst my favorite birds period. Some folks love their song, and while that song is nice, it’s the birds themselves that hold my interest. JK

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
