Quiet Time With Friends

Although Christmas is usually “hectic,” we’ve managed to find time for some of our mellower friends, too. Even though I quit featuring them in recent years, I always enjoy greeting the friendly Song Sparrows

whose happy song invariably greets us at Theler Wetlands

I’m sure I often fail to distinguish Fox Sparrows

from Song Sparrows, but I think this is a Fox Sparrow. It’s clear why even experienced birders sometimes refer to them all as LBJ’S (Little Brown Jobs).

Small female Buffleheads

are easily overlooked since they aren’t much bigger and are even shyer.
