Yard Critter of the Week - Swamp Sparrow

Swamp Sparrow

Thud! A bird hit the living room window.

"What was it?" "It seems to be ok." "It's something different, a different sparrow." So went the conversation as we left the comfort of the sofa and exchanged our morning coffees for binoculars.

There were two of them. And of course they didn't stay still. And the light wasn't the best. And they were right up agains the side of the house ... arrggghhh.

This is only the second time we've seen Swamp Sparrows in the yard.

They should visit more often.


Coincidently, American Bird Conservancy's Bird of the Week.
