The song sparrows have a nest in my yard and I came upon this little guy running across the lawn in search of insects but he paused just long enough to give me a nice pose. These birds have a complex and incredibly beautiful song which the juvenile males learn from the adult male birds. They are truly a joy to listen to.

    He seems to be fully aware of your presence and giving you excellent eye contact ....It is fun to listen to the sounds of birds singing and each species have their own style.
