The American Tree Sparrow (Spizella arborea) is a medium sized sparrow that breeds in the far north, but whose winter range extends from southern Canada south to a line through southern Nevada and northern Texas to South Carolina. Spring migration through Alberta starts in the last week of March and continues to the end of April, and fall migration extends from the last half of September to the middle of November.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
