Sparrow nest

I checked the White-throated Sparrow nest yesterday, and the adult bird sat tight on the nest as I peered through the long grass where the nest is located on the edge of the trail.

She finally flushed when I held the camera up to take a quick photo. When the bird got off the nest, I could see young nestlings in the nest – they look like they had just hatched.

I quickly got out of there because I wanted to disturb the bird as little as possible, and I didn’t want to leave any human scent on the grass that might attract a predator like a Fox or Bear or even a dog going for a walk with their owner on the trail.
