[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Chipping Sparrow, Spizella passerina, is a small sparrow. Its breeding habitat is wooded areas, suburban parks, and farmland across most of North America. It usually nests in trees, coniferous or deciduous, or sometimes on the ground. The Chipping Sparrow migrates to the southern United States and south to Mexico.

Adults have a rusty cap, a dark bill and grey underparts. They have a tan back with dark stripes, brown wings with white bars and a slim tail. Their face is grey with a black line through the eye. They are similar in appearance to the American Tree Sparrow.

These birds forage on the ground or in low bushes, sometimes flying up to catch insects in flight. They mainly eat insects and seeds.

These birds usually travel in flocks outside of the breeding season. The song is a simple trill. Although this bird's original habitat was probably coniferous forest, it has adapted well to the changes brought about by increased human population in its range.

Saludos Luis52.

Nice pose! I think I would have cropped or cloned out the limb in the upper right corner. Otherwise, good shot Luis!

Hola Luis,
Excelente captura de este gorrión!
Me gusta mucho la pose en que lo agarraste, con la cabeza inclinada a la derecha y sol iluminándolo de manera inmejorable.
El elemento seco de la derecha balancea la composición y le sirve de contrapeso.
Felicitaciones y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Hi Luis.
What a delicate picture you have created. Very cute pose of the bird, amazing scene and composition of the shot. I like art softness of the picture so much. It is very expressive and makes picture pleasant to look. Lighting and colour palette are very nice too. My compliments and TFS.

Coincido con las apreciaciones del Jose Miguel sobre la estética de esta composición estimado Luis... la bella postura del ave, capturada con nitidez, luminosidad y excelente punto de vista.
La adecuada ubicación de la rama y esas hojas? secas a la derecha le dan un marco de armonía y naturalidad a la escena, realzados por el imponente cielo de fondo.
Un gran saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
