Photo Study – LeConte’s Sparrow

Recently, Anna and I visited a hotspot for wintering LeConte’s Sparrows and Sedge Wrens near Gainesville, Florida. During the few hours we spent there photographing the birds, we were absolutely surrounded by both species – at one point I had four LeConte’s Sparrow perched together in one small clump of brush! As with all Ammodramus sparrows, LeConte’s Sparrows are absolutely beautiful and I would like to share a few photos that Anna and I took of these otherwise secretive birds (plus one shot of a Sedge Wren, just cause they are so cool!).
