first of the year song sparrow singing outside my kitchen window this morning, maybe it’s all worth it actually

The kind of quality birb content I come here for.

Also, noting that in biogeographically obsessive terms this might imply that the esteemed @stinkyofficial lives in the orange part of the map:

I guess it’s also possible they live in the purple. But I live in the purple, and at least around here you can hear song sparrows singing year-round. Though it’s true they get more insistent about it (if you can call it insistence to foist beauty on a hitherto-less-beautiful world) when the spring kicks in, so maybe that’s what they mean.

I agree with @dendroica‘s tags: I think that’s probably a Song Sparrow rather than a Swamp Sparrow.

An adorable birb either way, though!

The Song Sparrow’s (Melospiza melodia) season of persistent singing is spent. Now he slips away through the tall grasses and vines reluctant to even make a peep.

A Lincoln’s sparrow perched on a fence next to a song sparrow. You can really see the contrast between the two species here!

The thing about birding is that the even the “bad” days are actually still really good. There’s so much joy to be found when you take the time to appreciate another living thing, like this little doughboy. (at Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
