We are all familiar with the “brown birds.” You know, the seemingly boring ones that may appear slightly different from one another, but are all classified simply as: Sparrows. Well, as lovers of color and art, we completely understand the lack of enthusiasm that some might feel toward these comparatively less stunning creatures. However, with a little more insight, these little brown birds, or “LBB” as some like to call them, become that much more fascinating. Not to mention, distinguishing one from another really tests your eye!
The Lincoln’s Sparrow is an example of an “LBB” that is beautiful in its own right if you pause to appreciate its unique characteristics and song…
