Camera Critters #169

For years here, I have hoped to cross paths with a certain type of bird.  It isn’t a resident in this area, however, it has been reported on occasion. 

It took a trip back east for me to see the bird for the first time.

The bird above is the American Tree Sparrow.

Come hang out with me... you'll see plenty of them. And, we'll try to find a Cuckoo Bird too, but I think that may have been a once-in-a-lifetime thing.

Isn't it fun to see new birds? I'm from up north, so when I moved down south and saw a robin in January, it really messed with my head. We always knew growing up that when a robin was around, spring was, too! I'm glad you got to see the American Tree Sparrow!
