Female House Sparrow

The picture of this female House Sparrow with lots of personality was taken at Stuyvesant Cove which is on the East River in Manhattan between 18th Street and 23rd Street. It was taken on a cold day when there was a wonderful fog encompassing the East River and Stuyvesant Cove.

Song Sparrow in Snow

The picture of this Song Sparrow in the snow was taken just after the large snow storm we had here in New York City. The snow melted within two days. One of my favorite ways to photograph birds is in the snow because of the way the white shows off the bids and lights up the whole bird. I used the my Canon 5D Mark III which with the Canon 100-400mm lens which is my favorite walk about combination.
