Grace O'Malley photographed this Song Sparrow perched on a rock, singing.
We had warm, dry weather for December. Perhaps this sparrow thought it was spring and time to sing for a mate! He will be hunkered down today as we have some much needed rain.
These sparrows have a sweet call, which you can listen to at this site: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Song_Sparrow/sounds
Thanks to Grace for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
Craig Tooley recently photographed a lovely Song Sparrow. They are found across the United States but those in the Pacific Northwest look a bit different from their Eastern counterparts. It fills the air with its lilting song.
To hear the Song Sparrow's call, here's a link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Song_sparrow/sounds
