[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First picture taken with the new model Canon 600 mm II lens which I got on Monday.

A furtive bird of open grasslands, the Grasshopper Sparrow takes its name not only from its diet, but also from its insect-like song. It is found during the breeding season across much of the eastern United States and Great Plains, nesting and feeding mostly on the ground.
•Small songbird.
•Mostly brownish, with an unmarked buffy breast.
•Dark crown with a pale middle stripe.
•Large head.
•Short tail.
•Twelve subspecies of Grasshopper Sparrow are recognized. Four breed in North America, four are resident in Mexico, Central America, Colombia, and Ecuador, and four are resident in the Caribbean.
•Grasshopper Sparrow parents prepare grasshoppers to feed to the nestlings by shaking off each pair of legs in turn.
