Doing some birding at Lake Park in Milwaukee this morning I came across a stunning White-throated Sparrow. The first of the year for me. I never saw this bright of a yellow on a White-throated Sparrow before. It hung around scratching for food while I was there. Images were taken on April 10, 2017

    Wonderful details, Jim. These photos show that there is much more to sparrows than being just “little brown jobs.” That is a beautiful bird.
