Sparrows and flowers

Another handful of sparrow shots from along the Tomales Point Trail in Point Reyes National Seashore. I believe these are white-crowned sparrows, one of the three sparrow species I was able to photograph on this hike (the Song sparrow in my previous post, and some Savannah sparrows that will appear in a future post).

Sparrow and Flowers

This one landed in the lupine and started pecking at the flowers. I suspect looking for some kind of seed? Although I'm not sure.

Looking for a snack

As I was walking down the trail, some of the birds would occasionally take cover below the tops of the vegetation, but this one was particularly curious while hiding on the underside of some cow parsnip.

  1. Perhaps some ants on the flowers he was interesting for ?
    Real nice pics with wonderful colors !

  2. The last one just sells me. The sense of scale is perfectly captured. Something I don't think we often get in wildlife photography. It adds such depth and story to the image. Awesome
