Lincoln’s Sparrow



Sparrows seem to be overlooked often as subjects, I’ve heard people call them Little Brown Birds (LBB) or Little Brown Jobs (LBJ). I try to photograph them whenever I can get close though.

This Lincoln’s Sparrow (Melospiza lincolnii) was photographed last month at Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, the spring green leaves in the distantbackground sure don’t compete with the subtle beauty of this sparrow.

They are well named because it seems they sing all spring and summer long in some location, I get to hear them year round in Utah.

Her recent move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing them. With so many birds species there easily accessible it wasn’t long before she was hooked. By learning more about each species, she can anticipate their behaviour and create opportunities to obtain ever better images of those species.
