Hungry Song Sparrow


I'm not exactly what type of creature this song sparrow was after (maybe a water strider or a spider?), and I'm not exactly sure what the outcome of this encounter was, but I must that that I was surprised to see that I had captured this action.  The sparrow is chasing some type of creature.  Just follow its beak and you'll see it.

  1. Perhaps just a drink?? Great capture. A song sparrow wintered in my yard this year and it's glorious to here him declare his intentions to the world! He likes strawberry jam! ~karen
