Nature clicks #153 - White-throated Sparrow

White-throated Sparrow  

This is another bird that is just on its way north these days. I have seen it ones before in our woods in 2008. The interesting fact, at least for me, was that it was exactly the same day, April 27, when I saw it. There were three of them this time that stopped here for a few hours and enjoyed feeding on sunflower seeds on the ground that were spilled by the squirrels. The White-throated Sparrow is very pretty and I'm glad I can now replace my blurry picture from 2008 in my Iowa wildlife gallery (click HERE) with a better one this time.
