Saturday

A Face to the Sun

As I was watching/photographing this White-throated sparrow thru the dining room window, the sun came out and shined on his sweet face. If you look closely you can see some left-over berry juice on his beak.

This splendid picture made me tingle all over.

This sparrow is beautiful. The tiny fluff of sun bright yellow feathers above his beak is thrilling. The remains of it's juice berry sip of the morning is so exciting.

Happy day to you.

Thank you for sharing!

Yes, he does look like he's basking in the light, and I love the berry juice on his chin, sorry beak.
Was it a red or blue berry, looks red but the berry on the bush looks blue.

This sweet bird is lucky to be enjoying the berries and the sunshine! My birds have the snow but lots of seeds at my bird feeders! :)
