Rufous-collared Sparrow

To me, every bird is a work of art and thus I try to make each photo of one a work of art, though I do have some ugly photos just to document seeing a species! :-) This common Rufous-collared Sparrow was seen a lot at Hotel Savegre this trip and I have a trip gallery of Rufous-collared Sparrows that will soon become a part of the Trip Gallery for this 2023 time at Savegre. And of course in my big birds gallery there’s a larger Rufous-collared Sparrow GALLERY with birds from this and other mountain lodges and even one at a hotel in San Jose and it includes my very first photo of this species from my 2009 trip to this same hotel (then a smaller mountain lodge) which is interesting, of a mother feeding her chick a worm, if you don’t consider that gross! :-) And you can read about this tropical bird on eBird. It is found only in Central and South America. The scientific name is Zonotrichia capensis.

    1. Thanks Shannon! “Beautiful Art” is what I try to do and why I call it “Nature as Art!!” Next week will be my last week in the Gallería Artenas if interested in anything there. After that, my photography is available only online through my Gallery, Bookstore and CafePress – except the greeting cards which will be available at Hotel Colinas del Sol as I’m donating both card racks to them. From now on, my photography is just for fun! And this blog! 🙂

  1. Charlie, we are all so blessed to get to be a part of seeing all your wonderful art!

    Thank you God for Charlie!
