[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spotted a pair of these ground foraging sparrows while up at Magee Marsh this past Saturday. They were interesting to watch as they scratched through the leaves almost like chickens, while searching for insects.

Nice clear shot Ron. The flash really helped here. I used to take pictures of these on a country road with fence posts along it. The birds used the posts constantly to perch on and they were brave enough to stick around. I didn't get as good a shot as this one, but they were plentiful. Have a nice day! TFS Trevor

Hello Ron,

A very nice profiled composition of this attractive songbird. I can remember the very therapeutic song of this sparrow from my earliest childhood and have always looked forward to hearing this whistling tune - each and every year. Impressivw focus and the truest of colors represented in this superior image. Well done!



Hello my friend,
This is one of the few photos I have seen that the image of the object of focus (Sparrow) almost jumps to the foreground when opening the thumbnail! Spectacular detail and color with that special eye detail and blink in the eye.
Best regards,
I have been "very" curious about your TN name "TUSLAW". I have read most of the Western novels, Louis L'Mour, etc in my younger days. Maybe you are a decedent of one of the characters I read about? If you so wish, we can share why we chose our specific TN names?

Hello Ron,
What a cute Sparrow-species with the little yellow spot over the eyes..easy to identify with this special marking. I like the vivid attitude of the bird and the earth-colours of the shot.
Take care!

Ciao Ron. Amazing light and colours. Perfect DOF and details. Intrigant environment.


Bonjour Ron,
Agréable valorisation du sujet dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
