My New Favorite Photos? Henslow’s Sparrow

I don’t exactly know what it is about the following photos but they really caught my attention. A week ago Saturday, April 20, Mike and I were checking for shorebirds at Atterbury FWA when I initially heard this Henslow’s Sparrow. After a couple of minutes we spotted him sitting out in the open.

I guess if you take your time and look there is always something new and different to see.  Especially with local birds.
