    Saw quite a few sparrows today, a white throated, tree sparrow and a few others that I am unfamiliar with. These are a few.

    It was pretty much overcast all day and light was scarce so, some shots are quite grainy due to high ISO settings.

    The sharpness of #5 is stunning. (Mind you, they are all sharp, but that one specifically just blew me away)

    #4 and 5 are my favourites, such lovely shots of such 'ordinary' looking birds :)

    Sorry Bill, link should be fixed now.

    I did go up to lynde shore and halls rd. to look for the infamous barred owl, but sure enough he wasn't there when i looked. I went once in the morning and twice in the afternoon
    ....i'm sure he showed up when i left :)

    That 5th shot is about a 50%crop of the original. These sparrows hang around some bushes and there were quite a few of them sitting there. I had to focus between some branches to get a close shot of this guy, hence the blurry effect which are near by branches.



    Thanx everyone!
