Sparrow migration is off the hook this week.
I joined a non birding friend for lunch and when he came back with me to the parking lot at work I pointed to it and said, "Holy cow, that's a Harris's Sparrow, that's a really cool sparrow to see."
I set up my WingScapes Camera under my window feeders at work to see if there were any other sparrows not hopping up the window that I might be missing and got a shot of it. I posted it to Facebook and my friend who joined me for lunch said, "Yawn! Seen it! That EXACT bird...seen it."
I tried to tell him that he needed to show a brown bird some respect when another non birding friend chimed in, "I call all brown birds, Sharon Birds."
Hmmmm. Perhaps I should write a field guide.
