Swamp Sparrow

I was down by the water at the Celery Bog this morning, watching the waterfowl and listening to the Red-winged Blackbirds and Song Sparrows sing their springtime songs when I spotted him. On a moss covered log directly in front of me sat a tiny little sparrow, the likes of whom I had never seen before. He’d apparently never seen anything like me either because he stared back with the same level of wonderment. I had a hunch that I was looking at my first Swamp Sparrow and he even posed for a portrait, although I couldn’t get him to wipe off his face!
