This is one of the best bird photos I’ve ever taken. It’s not the most visually fascinating bird I’ve ever found. The contrast is rather unfortunate – brown bird against brown background, urg. I had to use a lot of zoom and crop, so the resolution isn’t spectacular. But look at the pose it struck and try to tell me it’s not one of the most adorable birdies ever.
How cute is that?
I only got one other shot before it went and hid in a tree.
Still. Hopefully, these shots are enough for identification purposes, and I’m delighted with that first one. It’s not often birds strike an actual pose for me.
This was at Browns Point Lighthouse, on the South Sound, for those who want to know where ye little brown bird originated. I have a feeling we’ll discover its species has a range of just about everywhere when you’ve identified it, though. It seems like one of those types of LBBs to me. And that’s all I shall say, except that I love it for being a good sport for a few seconds.
