Grasshopper Sparrow


After Eric locked the gate behind us departing the Frawley Ranch bison (previous post), he continued driving to take us to our car, when suddenly I saw a bird perched out my truck window.

Me being me when I see a bird of importance 😏, I shouted (hopefully not too loud! Sorry, Eric!) along the lines of “stop, can you stop…. back up…. back up…. little more….. right there!”  And then me… click click click click!

Welcome to my bird lifer list #233 Grasshopper Sparrow!  πŸ’ƒ

It became a double bonus when the little sparrow went into song!

Thank you, Eric, for a fabulous bison tour as well as being a champ and helping me score this lifer, you rock!

I remember hearing my husband telling Eric while he was backing up, “This is what she does to me all the time.”  πŸ˜‚ 😘

    • Thank you, Barbara! With both petting and feeding bison, then a bird lifer going out the gate, it had me on Cloud 9 for the rest of the day!! We all had a good laugh with my sudden burst. hehe
