Copperas Landing and Forest Park

Pileated Woodpecker flying across the road leading to Copperas Landing yesterday morning.

Is this a Lincoln's Sparrow? No, it's a Song Sparrow. I'm working to learn to distinguish them. I need better photographs I think. Perhaps when my birthday present arrives, a new lens with image stabilization, I'll get some better photographs of the elusive sparrows.
