Not Just Another Sparrow

Some people may not like sparrows as much as me, but I'm going to keep posting more photos regardless.  I put sparrows right up there with warblers.  Many people call sparows LBJ's (Little Brown Jobs, not Lyndon B. Johnson's) because they are difficult to identify and they all look the same.  That's not true if you look a little harder.  Take this Savannah Sparrow for instance.  You might be inclined to look at it and say "just another sparrow", but if you take the time to observe up close you can see the yellow on the head, the fine streaks on the flanks, and the forked tail.  I implore you to give sparrows a chance and you will see they are just as interesting as a spring warbler or as magnificent as a soaring hawk.
