It is that Time of Year – Juvenile Birds

I was in Uvalde these past few days checking out the Transition Ranch and I met the wonderful owners, Dr. Sandy & Leslee Kay Hurwitz.  My purpose in traveling to the ranch was to investigate the possibility of hosting workshops at the location and possibly serving as a ranch guide.  In reality, there is so much more that I hope to see evolve from this awesome experience and I hope to share more in the next few months.  The Hurwitz’s are incredibly hospitable and just a real pleasure to get to know.

Many people might think July is not the best time to go to a blind, but one of the things I love about late summer are the many juvenile plumages that often confuse birders and photographers alike.  I am one of those rare photographers who loves sparrows and I have even taught sparrow identification workshops for the Texas Ornithological Society.

At the ranch, we saw Black-throated, Rufous-crowned and Lark Sparrow juveniles.  Enjoy the photos:
