Sparrows are familiar birds to most everyone. Sometimes I know there are at least 40, maybe 50 at our two feeders at one time. If the majority are feeding on the ground beneath the feeders and something spooks them they’ll fly off in a Whoooooooosh! Sounds somewhat like a covey of Quail taking wing.
I’ll be posting numerous bird and squirrel images this winter. Generally, I’ll be using my Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 II Zoom lens. I’ve had it for years … used it with my Canon EOS Elan film camera, which I still use once in a while, before getting my Canon T3 DSLR.
