I told you in January that Black-throated Sparrows are my favorite sparrows. Look how sharply patterned that bird is! Very handsome, catching the warm early morning light from the side, to give the photo a nice three-dimensional feel.

The photo above in a creosote bush has some out-of-focus vegetative "blobs" in the foreground but, I think, they do not distract too much, do they?

Below is a Black-throated Sparrow in its typical habitat.

These were all photographed in Hellhole Canyon--a word choice you'd undoubtedly forgive if you visited in summer.
