Calling All Potential Mates!
On a trip to Kankakee State Park this weekend, the sound of music was being sung right outside the window of my car. (It's a trill sound which isn't all that beautiful, but he sure was...) I spotted a Chipping Sparrow, with its head held high, singing his song for all the pretty ladies to hear. He sang the whole time I shot him, and I left him to his courting...
His back was to the wind causing his feathers to blow forward, giving him a really cute appeal!
(Click on photo to enlarge, the size of this photo for posting doesn't do it justice.)
Note: I have plenty of pictures from this weekend to sort through. Expect plenty of posts this week!
