Lovely call

I captured this White-throated Sparrow in the boxelder just off the deck.  In looking up its entry on the All About Birds site I came across its lovely call. So this is the song I’ve heard the past few days! I invite you to click the link and listen to its cheerful tune.

Look up

I arrived home this afternoon ready to go inside. I stepped out of the car, took a moment to look up, and saw quite a few Turkey vultures were soaring directly overhead. After scrambling to get my camera out of the car I was fortunate to capture two of these remarkably graceful animals.
