[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, 2 weeks ago I have
done an in-flight photo of the
White-throated Sparrow but he was
in a very low ground level flight.

Here is a much better in-flight
photo of the White-throated Sparrow
in his take-off flight pose in the sky.

1/4000s f/7.1 (photo shot in Manual mode),
ISO800, 50mm (35mm eq:75mm) and up to
50% of cropping, I did not want to give more
cropping to not loose more on image quality.

- White-throated Sparrow
- Bruant à gorge blanche
- Zonotrichia albicollis

from the All About Birds website

« Crisp facial markings make
the White-throated Sparrow an
attractive bird as well as a hopping,
flying anatomy lesson.

There’s the black eyestripe, the white
crown and supercilium, the yellow lores,
the white throat bordered by a black whisker,
or malar stripe. They’re also a great entrée
into the world of birdsong, with their pretty,
wavering whistle of Oh-sweet-canada.

These forest sparrows breed mostly
across Canada, but they’re familiar
winter birds across most of eastern and
southern North America and California. »
