[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Folks , today I have this image of a song sparrow , making his music along the Highwood River here in town , and what a happy song this little bird sings.

the song sparrow uses it song to declare / defend its territory and to attract a mate , the female is not attracted simply to a song she 'likes' rather is attracted by how the song reflects on the male , through the components of the sparrows song the male is able to demonstrate its ability to learn.

Thanks for having a look

Hello Art,
Well! and all you have become an ornithologist! good job. buenm POV, great blanade and a bird perfectly focused and in a pose "singer" very fun and enjoyable! Thank you for bringing us this cool photo! Good job!
It is an honor for me, be your neighbor in TN today!

Great capture of this lovely lover-boy sparrow, Art! Good detail, sharpness and moderate colors. when talking about colors why do not push a bit the saturation of the image lets say +-10% and may be crop the image a bit, but thats may be a silly suggestion after all thats a subjective issue! Have a great week friend Art!

Hello Vanni

This picture is very fabulous! Wonderful shot of it singiong!

Hi Art,

Great shot of that Song Sparrow. Good timing, as he sings his song. Well captured colours and details. Song Sparrows apparently have a very large repertoire of songs. The second part of their Latin name is melodia, which means melody. TFS.

I did a quick WS using Picasa. I just wanted to see how your shot would look if I were to crop a little closer to the sparrow.
