Another lifer for me! A Lincoln’s Sparrow I took back at the end of last year that I just found I never published.
This little House Sparrow checking around to make sure that no one notices it squeezing into the space between two boards under some eaves. I have no earthly idea how this bird is managing to grab onto a vertical wall. Kinda like a cat burglar.
I shot this Black Phoebe during the BVAS February Bird Count when the clouds parted for just a split second and the birds came out. I managed to get this one shot and it flew off to go grab some grub before it started to rain. I just really love the highlights of the sun on the very black matte wings of the Phoebe. I feel like most black birds in the area have more iridescent feathers so highlights like these are abnormal here.
Still winter when I took this photo. It makes it really clear why we have so many tiny brown birds in San Diego. The scrub brush becomes really bare during the winter so you end up with fields of sticks.
