Lincoln’s Sparrows – Beautifully Bland

Alex LamoreauxMigration, photo study, Photography0 Comments

The ABA area has it’s fair share of sparrows and I have been fortunate enough to have seen most of them but for some odd reason the one that really gets me excited, and the one that for whatever reason I really like the most, is the Lincoln’s Sparrow. To a beginner birder, the Lincoln’s Sparrow might look identical to a Song Sparrow and would be easily over-looked. However, once you begin to see this species more, and learn the field marks that make it unique, and begin to anticipate is arrival during spring and fall migration, it is easy to see why this species is just so cool. At any rate, here are some photos that I have taken of Lincoln’s Sparrows that I think you may enjoy!
