Black-throated Sparrow

I’ve been overwhelmed by other priorities the past few days so I haven’t had a chance to post more shots of the Black-throated Sparrow encounter at Kearny Lake. But I’ve managed a few minutes to post another shot.

Taken at the same time as my previous post, also from the driver’s seat of my car with the camera gear balanced on a monopod jammed between the seat and door. This is more typical of my style, with the bird immersed in the vegetation of its preferred habitat. I know many people prefer the more sterile look of an uncluttered setting like in my previous post, but I really enjoy the details of habitat and the story told about the bird’s life style. Like other sparrows the Black-throated Sparrow looks for seed and small insects primarily on the ground.

  1. I like the ‘native habitat’ shots better. It shows much more about the bird, not just the (terrific) photo.
