This week’s photo, taken November 17, 2017 from our bedroom window here in Seattle, WA, features a rare bird for our yard, a WHITE-THROATED SPARROW. The last and only other time we’ve spotted one in our yard was 4 years ago.
This one didn’t linger long; it took off when the Dark-eyed Juncos decided to depart. The sparrow’s brief visit is a reminder that we could miss a cool sighting – in the blink of an eye. So, here’s my birding tip for today: “blink less, see more.”
It’s that time of year to remind you that my bird photos make lovely holiday cards or gifts, phone cases and prints: http://joe-sweeney.fineartamerica.com
