White-throated Sparrow

And we continue on with our march of birds to the small garden as I haven't been able to take a day trip out of the city.

Another LBJ, this time it is a white-throated sparrow. We only get them in the winter as they breed in Canada and the northern most parts of New England.



Hopefully a day trip will be coming up as they are not predicting any snow, just regular North Carolina winter weather.

Could that picture be any better? I think not.

Happy New Year to you. I've so enjoyed getting to know you.

Jane: Thank goodness the sparrow was looking for seed right in front of the sliding glass door so I could get a good shot.

It was wonderful to "meet" you and all of my other fantastic blogging friends.

Anne: Thank you and a good New Year and maybe a little warmer weather to you, too!

Hi Karen, I'm back in Cape Town again and in contact with the outside world. Have just enjoyed catching up with your blog and admiring all the terrific bird pix.

Val: I'm glad to see you're back again and blogging. Can't wait to see more photos from Cape Town.
