Harris’s Sparrow – October 25th, 2008 @ Wilmington DE

Photobucket

I read the Delaware rare bird alert early today and saw that the reported Harris’s Sparrow was seen early this morning. A trip to Wilmington DE is about an hour and a half from my house (equivalent to a trip to the Brig for us) so I decided to jump in the car and take a shot. The bird showed up about 5 min after i arrived and stuck around for about 2 minutes. He did this twice in a half and hour period. He was unafraid and allowed many people to be within 15 feet of him. A striking bird and one truly worth the trip!
