I saw one of these birds fly out of a bush, across the trail, and into a tree. I stopped. I waited. I looked, but couldn’t spot it.

Close-up of a small light brown bird with black wings, a white head with black stripes on it, and a yellow beak, perched in a sparse, dry bush.

I saw one of these #birds fly out of a bush, across the trail, and into a tree. I stopped. I waited. I looked, but couldn’t spot it. I took another, slow, careful step. Another #sparrow flew out of the bush, across the path, and into the tree. I stopped again.

This went on for about FIVE MORE ROUNDS before a couple of them flew into another bush and stopped where I could SEE them!

Then one of them flew off while I was aiming. 🤦
