Saturday, May 13, 2017 Lincoln's Sparrow and Wilson's Warbler

Seward, Alaska

I cruised slowly along the Lagoon on Dairy Hill Lane and stopped ASAP when I heard the bubbly song of a LINCOLN’S SPARROW. I spotted him perched on a power line, singing his heart out. He looked so tiny in comparison to the thick line!

The blooming willows attracted tiny insects which in turn attracted a bright yellow WILSON’S WARBLER, a male with a jaunty black cap. This sunny bit from the tropics was tough to photograph as he flitted and free-fell among the willow branches. Welcome back, Mr. Wilson!

Happy Birding!
