...yet blending in. Birds do this so well.
This American Tree Sparrow was one of dozens in the yard today. I watched them for quite some time. After all, migration happens quickly and they're just passing through.
So a short while ago I decided to take a few pics to mark the occasion. To capture the blending. To keep a bit of its beauty to myself. I was in the kitchen, carefully poking the lens out the window, being as quiet as possible. But the zoom makes noise. I know this. I know better.
Sure enough, the bird looked straight at me. And sure enough, soon after it left.
