Sparrows of Fall

I went out to Rollins Savanna F.P. today in hopes of Nelson's Sparrow.  Missed on that, but did see some sparrows.  They are picking up in numbers now, including over 100 Savannah Sparrows.  It was a beautiful fall morning and though I missed a lifer, I can't complain at all.

Here's a sparrow compilation from the morning

Savannah Sparrow

Lincoln's Sparrow

and some non-Sparrows...

Common Yellowthroat wishing it was a Connecticut Warbler

distant Northern Shovelers

Good birding and Bear down, Chicago.  BEAR DOWN!
