“Cape Sable” Seaside Sparrow

I needed to refer to photographs to make this portrait of the “Cape Sable” Seaside Sparrow we saw in the Everglades. We were in position, just beyond Mahogany Hammock by 8:00A and listened for the birds’ Red-winged Blackbird-esque song. We watched several males at a good distance as they perched high in the saw grass. Mosquitos were pretty bad that morning, but the worst insect experience was definitely at the Gumbo Limbo trail…
