White Throated Sparrow

By cceccles
Whilst visiting Cadillac mountain we heard the loud song of a White Throated Sparrow and after a bit of searching found him in a nearby tree. The picture was against the light so did a bit of work in Photoshop to bring out the detail.

I like the way there is very little colour in the image except for the bright yellow mark on the sparrow. Best viewed large if you have the time.

Hope you enjoy.

Nice shot Chris. Quite dramatic in a way with the bare branches of the tree, the bird against the light, and that bright splash of yellow on the head.

A fine image of the bird in it's own environment. So different from Mike's and every bit as good.
