Zonotrichia albicollis 6-7 inches
Bright yellow lores and a white bib at his throat identify this bird as the White-throated Sparrow. This sparrow will likely be seen anywhere in the eastern USA.
Here the bird sits waiting his turn at the feeder thinking he is hidden within the orange tree.
A great glow to this shot -- with perfect, sharp focus on the eye. This is a very interesting comp -- with the bird surrounded by the thorns.
Nice one, Jennnnnnnnnnn.
Super image Jenn, like this a lot,
The sparrow stands out well in what looks like a very spiky tree.
Good catch light in eye.
Is this what an orange tree looks like without the fruit?
brilliant detail jenn belting comp and colours a cracker nice one
Beautiful Jenn !!!!
very stunning capture
Beautiful bird, very sharp surrounded by thorns makes a Great pic.
Love the pose in this one, Jenn, but that looks to be a hazardous spot to venture into with all those spiky thorns.
Rather more brightly plumaged than the sparrows here, although there are precious few of them around these days.
This is really a superb photo Jenn !! I love this lovely bird !!
Turning into a "THornithologist" Jenn, a smashing shot and great narrative thanks!
Love the way you have made the bird stand out amongst the thorns.
Very good clarity in amongst those thorns, Jenn, they give a lovely framework for the pose.
beautiful Jenn, how did you manage to get the sparrow so focused and not pick up on the tree which generally blocks the shot, or can do
Gorgeous light in this crip, beautifully detailed capture
Wonderful capture Jenn
Lovely capture,Jenn,very well done,
Superb shot Jennn. You has done so well to focus so sharply on the bird with all those twigs and branches around him. I have never seen this particular bird before.
Lovely bird image Jenn.
You have done so well isolating this bird from it's background. Gorgeous.
Lovely clarity in the bird........Sandy
A lovely little bird and I love his choice of perch! Guess that's one way of keeping safe, surrounded by all those thorns!
Ouch! those look sharp to catch yourself on
A lovely shot Jennn,
in natural surroundings
A rose among thorns works so well Jenn ,very good capture and the detail is stunning love it.
excellent capture Jenn
Lovely capture Jenn and a species I haven't seen before, thanks for sharing,
Birds are amazing. I mean, to so comfortably negotiate all those thorns!
WONderful capture, Jennnn. The branches and background set him off so very well.
it's all been said Jennnnxxxx
He can't hide from your lens Jennn.
Thought it was a Thorn-bird
No hiding from your keen eye! At he risk of repeating others - beautifully sharp and perfectly focused.
Great picture love the detail the colours and have not heard of this one before a brilliant picture to show off this bird. Bob
Great work Jenn
a fine sparrow who look much like our cirl buntings thanks to his beautiful cap. Like your thorny perch very much!
Wonderful shot of this lovely, and clever, sparrow, his choice of spot should have him pretty safe from any predators, such as cats, with all these thorns guarding him!
The brave bird! It sits between such big thorns. One awkward movement and...
What a splendid bird wish ours were like that, well captured Jenn. regards Leon.
What a charming little bird Jenn, I like the yellow markings above its eyes
Living a dangerous life...............
Love the colours of this Sparrow Jennnn. I was wondering what the thorny tree was & you told us it was an orange tree . Didn't realise they had thorns . xx
