Song Sparrow scratching an itch on his perch in the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.

Last year, I shared the song of the Song Sparrow. This year I not only enjoyed the Song Sparrow’s singing but a real life moment. As the saying goes, when you get an itch, scratch it. 🙂

    Not your typical bird photo. I like it, did you use flash?

    This is beautiful! It kinda reminds me of vintage postcards… the colors, I think. 🙂

    Miss Sadie and the Cowboy can relate. Cheery little guy! – and I love the tendrils twining about his perch.

    Sure, Scott. You wouldn’t want to stop a good song just to scratch an itch would you?

    He looks so precarious perched on the end of that little branch. Lovely shot, Scott…


  6. I agree with Gerry — I just love that vine! And the light is wonderful — beautiful picture!

    A wonderful Blog and beautiful photos Scott Thomas.

    Thanks for your visit to my Blog and your comment on your father loading the bombs on the aircraft, sounds very interesting.
    I’ll pop back from time to time and catch more of your great shots.

    I really like this shot. You can imagine the bird telling his buddy a story and stopping for a scratch in the middle of his story. Hey, did you submit this one to Shrew for storytelling?

    I love this photo. You captured this little fellow at the perfect moment. Talk about being “out on a limb!”
