Well, third time’s a charm. I’ve seen a Le Conte’s Sparrow twice here before this morning (both times with a group), but no photos. This morning I walked out by myself, hoping to find one and finally photograph it. Score! Le Conte’s Sparrows have now skyrocketed in my estimation to the prettiest sparrow I’ve photographed, beating out Nelson’s, Saltmarsh, and Grasshopper Sparrows. What an awesome bird!
