Lincoln’s Sparrow

I spotted this Lincoln’s Sparrow at Spring Canyon last week. I’ve seen them at other places before but never at Meredith, so I was pleased to find one. They aren’t unusual for the area during migration. I include a few other birds seen in the last week in the post as well.

It was a beautiful April afternoon, but the water was still pretty cold.American White Pelcan (11) (1024x745)American White Pelcan (10) (1024x684)American White Pelcan (9) (1024x637)American White Pelcan (8) (1024x693)American White Pelcan (7) (1024x684)American White Pelcan (6) (1024x684)American White Pelcan (3) (1024x671)American White Pelcan (2) (1024x670)American White Pelcan (1) (1024x684)

Red-winged Blackbird. This guy was staking out territory and his displays and songs were spectacular. It was pretty early in the morning and the sun was still low to my right with the bird facing away from it. The sun shinning through the epaulets really made them stand out.Red-winged Blackbird (9) (1024x684)Red-winged Blackbird (7) (1024x684)
