Phil Slade said...

I know they are common enough but I loved those White-throated Sparrows and their cheeky whistling notes. Thanks for reminding me of them Karen.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like the way you've connected the sparrow to the squirrels by calling them all grounders. Clever!

Julie said...

I love the gray squirrel and all the shots were wonderful.

Rambling Woods said...

Susan said...

Gorgeous photos and, my goodness, how cute are those squirrels. Their tails are so fluffy.
The little sparrow is quite dear too :D)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your squirrels are adorable... each has it's own personality. Are you the only one in the family who recognizes them? I'm guessing Beep probably does also when she visits!

Roan said...

I keep looking for an interesting sparrow, but all I can see are the common variety. This one is a beauty. Love the squirrel!

A White-throated Sparrow always seems somehow uniquely Canadian to me. Great shot.
