Song Sparrow

Song Sparrow: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — I always scatter some mixed seed under the feeders when I go out to sit in my backyard photo blind…mostly for the juncos, sparrows, doves, and the occasional cardinal…all of whom seem to enjoy foraging for the seed among the leaf litter. Most of them will come quite close to the blind, though it does mean opening the window all the way down so I can get an angle on them. This Song Sparrow took most of an hour to work its way forward into plain sight. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. ISO 125 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Plus .3 EV (I did not need the EV for this shot, but it was set from shots against the bright background around the feeders.)
