Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

A rich, russet-and-gray bird with bold streaks down its white chest, the Song Sparrow is one of the most familiar North American sparrows. Don’t let the bewildering variety of regional differences this bird shows across North America deter you: it’s one of the first species you should suspect if you see a streaky sparrow in an open, shrubby, or wet area. If it perches on a low shrub, leans back, and sings a stuttering, clattering song, so much the better.

    Of all the birds that sing in our back yard, this one has the most variety (well, the Catbird & the Mockingbird give him a run for his money…) & the sweetest, most cheerful sound (well, the Wren is cheerful & INTENSE)… what was I saying? Oh, yes. Simply put, when he sings, he makes my day. Wonderful shot of his majesty.
