I'm lucky if I get to see one Lincoln's Sparrow a year on our property, so I'm glad my lucky day was sunny. I've always thought sparrows were underrated and I think the Lincoln's is arguably one of most attractive.

Nicely done Al! Glad you got the shots! They’re one of my favorite Sparrow species and always happy to see them when they visit.

Thank you for commenting, Brad; I appreciate it. Sparrows have a lot of subtle attributes and are worthy targets, I think.

Very nice pics as always, Al. But “targets” may have been a poor choice of words, if you get my drift.:-)

Thank you kindly; I appreciate it. I saw more Lincoln's Sparrows this spring than some of the more common ones, like American Tree Sparrows. It's been a strange season.
