Blogging from A-Z • Z • Zonotrichia Alibicollias

When I was blogging about sparrows for the letter S, I omitted a certain species for a very important reason.  That reason is because the Latin name of this sparrow begins with Z!  Z is for  Zonotrichia Alibicollias also known as the white throated sparrow.



I am very fond of the white throated sparrow.  I love its striking stripes and the contrast of its white throat.


They are a curious little bird and don't seem to mind posing for a photo now and again! Sometimes they even pose themselves in a bush full of berries in front of a vibrant blue sky!



I cannot believe the A-Z challenge has come to a close.  THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE who stopped by and took a moment to read my posts and gander at my photos.  I haven't had a chance to respond to all the comments, but believe me when I say, it was very meaningful to me every time I received a comment.



May 7 is the date for the "A-Z Reflections" post, and that is when I plan to announce the winner of the drawing for the seven pairs of earrings.  And for the final pair, here is a design by Gwen Fisher, called Ginko Leaf.  These are a really fun cubic right angle weave design!  Thanks to all the folks who commented during the A-Z challenge.  This is the final post to comment to be entered in a drawing to win seven pairs of earrings!

  4. Oh..We get that little sparrow around us looking for seed:) He is a cutie and that picture you have with him in the berry tree could make a beautiful Christmas card. Love these earrings and the colours...I am a sucker for the metallic look
