Swamp Sparrow

Swamp Sparrow, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

Another bird seen at Metzger Marsh on May 8, 2011.

As we were patiently waiting to see if the Tricolored heron was still in the area, we kept hearing the rustling in the grass and rees of this shy bird flitting about. After a very long wait for the heron, which we did eventually see, the swamp sparrow finally came out to see if we were still hanging around. I had been following the bird's movement in the underbrush, just hoping that it would continue into the small gap between the grass and the nearest shrub. This was my lucky capture of it on my camera sensor.
