See the tail feathers off to the center right of the photo? Maddening.
I have been able to capture a few photos of birds that are ground foragers. They tend to be a little easier to photograph because they are on the ground (no craning my neck) and they also take longer pauses between flits or hops looking for insects.
I'm very pleased with this photo. Thank you, White Crowned Sparrow. Your black and white crown feathers are so fetching.
