Savannah Sparrow Yard Bird!

For the first time ever, we have had a Savannah Sparrow in the backyard! We have seen it many times out in the field, but never in our own yard. It showed up last night and was back here bright and early this morning.

We also have the iBird app on our phones and when we play the Savannah Sparrow song, we get quite a few replies from a 1 or 2 block radius. Fun stuff!

The Savannah is in the middle surrounded by Juncos and White-Crowned Sparrows.

This was about as close as we could get without it flying off.

Hanging out in our Quince tree.

Great photo! I saw my first one of the season last week at Cooper Mountain.
