Song Sparrow: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — As I have mentioned, the Song Sparrow is one of the first migrant passerines to arrive back in Southern Maine as spring comes on…about the same time as some of the larger non-passerines…the Turkey Vultures and Red-tailed Hawks. Many of our common feeder birds winter over these days. I saw my first Song Sparrows last week, though I have not heard one singing yet. They come in under my backyard photo blind feeders to clean up after the other birds. This one posed nicely, up off the ground for a change, before moving on. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. ISO 200 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
