A fox sparrow cheerfully rejoices

springs return.

Browsing through my birding book this eve I noticed I had labeled this one incorrectly...
It is a song sparrow just as Kildale already has suspected. A fox sparrow would have had a more red-brown tail.

Are you sure that it is a fox sparrow? Looks like a song sparrow.

Funny that you say that about the stained glass window! I will take a picture that explains why that is funny.
That monarch was one of many that emerged last season. Sorry to inform you though, it is not lavender behind him, it is pokeberry, (Phytolacca americana) I have a few of them growing around the yarden. One of my favorite plants. The one that is behind the monarch is quite large, about 7' high and you have to duck under it to get in through the gate. Beautiful plant!

I'm chuckling a bit, I hadn't meant lavender literally. I was referring to the beautiful blue-purple tones behind it. I really liked the duo colors mixed together ..

That monarch looks like a stained glass window. I haven't seen any yet this year. I'm waiting.... not so patiently!!!
