I went to a place this morning with high hopes to find songbirds. Unfortunately the place is exposed and the wind was too strong.
I found this bird in the parking lot.

Sparrows are under appreciated. yes, I know they are "non native" species. However, the ones we see don't know that. They are just trying to make their way in the world. Love the fluffy feathers.

Despite the wind being too strong Karl, I really like the puffed up appearance. Good job on the detail, light, and color.

Sparrows are so chirpy and cheerful most of the time, I guess that's why I like them. A sweet view of this little windblown beauty, Karl with lovely detail.
