Sometimes I see something and don't realize it's important. I saw this sparrow at Wagner Cover on the late afternoon of the 6th. First there was movement in the leaves. Then I could see the sparrow and my immediate thought was that this was such a pretty, sweet sparrow, but I couldn't figure out which sparrow it was. "Sweet sparrow" is not in the bird guide. I got sorted out at home, pink beak = field sparrow, mentioned it to a birder today who explained that this is important, that this bird is here early, so I'm posting the field sparrow now. All birds are beautiful, but this bird is adorable.
