a fine capture of a Rufous-winged Sparrow taken from a great frontal POV with fine sharpness and stands out well against the blue sky in this excellent composition. He seems to have an unusually long tail, or is it another one directly behind him?.
TFS this delightful image,

Wonderful shot of this Sparrow in a fine pose. The blue sky as BG and the green leaves have become so much a part of your photography and so special too - almost a genre I would say. Very neat and sharp image with superb light management. Excellent composition.

Beautifully composed with excellent POV and detail Jane. The blue sky BG and the branch offer just the right supporting props to make the ovwerall image outstanding. Very well done. TFS the image as well as the informative notes... :)

There are several sparrow species from the genera Passer and Petronia here. Some of them very similar your sparrow. but it belongs to another genus, Aimophila.
As for your post, great for this beautiful sparrow. It gave great pose on top of green branch. Eyes contact, POV, sharp focus and lighting great and in your usual quality. Blue sky nicely composed it in BG. Thanks for sharing this beauty. well done.

It looks like a Texas-sized sparrow, not that there is such a thing..but it certainly isn't a Sparrow I have seen...this part of the family appears through your lens to be a tad if not more larger..and well caught in your azure skies!

Great shot Jane, of a sparrow that I'm not familiar with.
Very sharp image with nice natural colors. The tail of this sparrow seems very long compared to the ones we have around here. Your deep blue skies always makes me a little envious. TFS. Great notes!!

Cheers Rick :)

Hi Jane. I am amazed by your consistency in getting the spotless blue sky for your bird shots. Really well isolated image in very nice perch and excellent framing. Well done and TFS. Regards. Jusni
Even if you took this shot from above, this nice sparrow was gentle enough to lean its head toward you :-)
You did a great composition using that square frame.
The only thing is that appears to me obvious that you passed a noise reduction software (like Neat Image) on the feathers of the bird removing there a lot of details... Am I wrong???
