So, it seems to be the season of the sparrow this year as they were out in profusion across Washington, DC, although the starlings did their best to make an appearance or two.
The hardest part about getting some of these photos was keeping vacationing children on the Washington Mall from scaring potential subjects away.
With the wealth of dried twigs and grass, she was often very difficult to find
The meeting will now come to order
Didn’t want to play your silly games, anyways
Beautiful plummage for such an annoying bird
Vainest bird I have ever seen…must have spent 10 minutes doing this
Get in ma belly!
She was so serene and beautiful, she just begged to be photographed
Ahhh…so close to being an amazing photograph!
These two hopped around each other for quite some time, so I’m assuming they’re bonded
Like a film about the Serengeti, this puddle quickly became something of a watering hole for the locals
It was bath time for this eager little starling
A second before I snapped this shot, her buddy had dived into the can
Getting a shot of this little guy was difficult as he hopped from spot to spot on the tree
I really wish the lighting could have been better, but he was determined to get something from that branch elbow

Love your portraits!
Thank you…I enjoy taking them, but it’s nice to know they are appreciated by others. 🙂
Nicely done. I love birds and their habits. That said, with you being in D.C., I never realized how politicians are like sparrows: they tend to flock and are easily scared. And if you’re in the wrong spot when they take flight, you can get @#$% on.
Ain’t that the flocking truth!
The hardest part is deciding if they are left wing or right wing?
But they’re all wing-nuts! (last pun)
Agreed! (on both counts 🙂 ) Have a great day!
