Little Friend

I was walking along the river last week when this small brown bird began to whistle his distinctive springtime call. I answered the little fellow in kind, so he kept getting closer and closer--close enough for me to take his picture.

Suddenly he seemed to realize I was not a bird and whistled a sound scolding before flitting away. But a few minutes later, he was back--I guess he liked the idea of talking to a human. We had the most interesting conversation.

I think it is also a song sparrow. There is another sparrow that looks very much the same as mine and it is called a fox sparrow and it looks like mine and yours. Either way they are both nice birds to have been able to photograph.

How cute! I went for a walk yesterday by a lake and I was amazed at all the little yellow rumped warblers flitting around. I also saw some red winged blackbirds. They were all quite noisy and I enjoyed myself and them immensely!
