We did have a sparrow smorgasbord in the field. I took alot of photos of sparrows for identification purposes. And, I am still unsure of this one ( I think Swamp Sparrow).
We also saw a good number of hawks. Sharp-shinned hawks were everywhere along with Red-shouldered and Red-tailed. We even saw a Red-tailed Hawk that was getting banded at the hawk watch platform. Here is the bander holding the hawk. It was soon released but I couldn't get a good shot of it.
I also got these shots of Norther Shovelers. Male:

Beautiful shots Linda. That Swamp Sparrow (it looks like one to me) is absolutely gorgeous. The hawk handler looks a bit apprehensive with that bird all ruffled up.
FYI, When you post on Bird Photography Weekly, there is a "Mister Linky" in green, just below the logo. Click on that to post your link, then put something in the comments below if you want. Most people, I think, just go to the link page.
Larry -- thanks for the tip. I added my blog with the Mr Linky tool. Thanks for the comments too.
