Sparrows seem to be overlooked often as subjects, I’ve heard people call them Little Brown Birds (LBB) or Little Brown Jobs (LBJ). I try to photograph them whenever I can get close though.

This Lincoln’s Sparrow was photographed last month at Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, the spring green leaves in the distant¬†background sure don’t compete with the subtle beauty of this sparrow.

*I am away for a few days, please feel free to share this post with your friends and family. I’ll catch up on everyone’s great blogs when I get back!
