Acquire This Photo

Species: Henslow's Sparrow (Ammodramus henslowii)
Location: Mill Creek Streamway Park, Johnson County, Kansas, United States
Age: adult     Plumage: basic/year-round     Activity: perching/standing
Sex: male     Visibility: full body     Quantity: single
Photographer: David Seibel     Date: April 24, 2009
Equipment: Canon EOS 1D Mark II N and Canon 500mm f/4L IS     Megapixels: 3.9

Notes: This was one of several males apparently singing on territory in the same field. I located one of its favorite perches and just sat down near it and waited. The bird was so tame that it came closer than I could focus (less than 15 ft) several times. The cocked tail in this image is the result of a strong gust of wind, not the bird's normal posture.
