He's got the back of a regular sparrow and the head is somewhat related to a chickadee! Cute little bird, I would love to have him visit my feeder!

Gine said...

Oh ! On ne le voit jamais chez nous, mais comme il est joli - un peu comme le roitelet à triple bandeau, mais son menton en éventail le fait très distingué !

I love how he/she is all puffed up to keep warm.

I agree with Jientje, it definitly reminds me of a Chickadee/Sparrow mix, with an added touch of Goldfinch! What a beauty.

Carletta, cute shot of the cardinal. He has a strange look there, I assume he is look at something below him. Either way, a great shot. Thanks for sharing, have a great day.

Your white throated sparrow is so cute compared to my ordinary European house sparrow.

Isn't he handsome sitting there on the snowy pillar! At first I thought "golden-crown" sparrow, which we used to have in Oregon, but I see the difference.

George said...

This is a great portrait of the sparrow. Very well done.

Beautifully composed image Carletta. The tones and shallow depth are just wonderful too.

He's absolutely beautiful!

Oh, what a little sweetie! The poor thing looks cold. Maybe he's hoping the lady with the camera will invite him inside.
