This Morning Outside

Beautiful birds are passing through North America that in some places, such as Iowa, you can see only in spring in fall. Like the timid Lincoln's sparrow. If you weren't quite awake you might pass it off as a song sparrow. But the thin white eyering, delicately streaked breast, and wash of faint buff across the top of the chest reveal it to be Lincoln's sparrow, my favorite sparrow.

It is a good thing to be awake on a May morning in North America.
