The ochre-coloured sparrow on the red rock surprised me — a Baird's Sparrow, out in the open. The only Baird's I'd seen before had been somewhat hidden in a shrub. But this was at Grasslands National Park, in this bird's natural habitat, and the rock was some distance away. So why be surprised? Just enjoy.
