Field SparrowNovember 2008

The field sparrow is among the prettiest sparrows around. Or perhaps I enjoy in particular its pastel colors. That plus the field sparrow's white eye ring and bright orange bill make it one of the easier sparrows to identify

The immature field sparrow has virtually no facial markings, but it still has a white eye ring and its orange bill.

  Photo note: I used the SMC 1000mm reflex lens with all three photos; the first was with the K200D body (in Oct. 2008) and the second two with the trusty *ist D (during 2007).
