Field Sparrow
Spizella pusilla
The Field Sparrow (Spizella pusilla) is widespread across the eastern half of the United States. There are also isolated records in the west. The individual shown in the top three shots was a singing male near Austin, Travis Co., Texas in May, 2005. The photos were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and an EF 600mm F/4L IS lens with a 2X extender. Next is a wintering bird near Buffalo Gap, Taylor Co., Texas, in December, 2005. It was shot with the same digital camera and lens as above.
Perhaps one of the most common views of a Field Sparrow is to see one perched on a fence wire along a roadside. This one was in Kenedy Co., Texas in January, 2000. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1N and EF 600mm F/4 L lens and 1.4X extender on Fuji Provia film.
The next two shots at right were also in Kenedy Co., Texas, in January, 2000, and were taken with the same equipment as the shot above.
The next 2 shots of Field Sparrows were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in March, 2010, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 800mm F/5.6 L IS lens.
The Field Sparrow on the right was in Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Randall Co., Texas, in January, 2011. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 800mm F/5.6 L IS lens.
