Shoot Me Monday

Lots of birds are on the move south.  By now the Botteri's Sparrows that spend the summers in Southeast Arizona are in Mexico.  Back in August I searched for them in the grasslands below Madera Canyon.  This is a good spot to find them and I had seen them here before.  But I never had the opportunity to photograph one.  After listening to a few distant birds singing, I heard one nearby.  It's definitely a song you want to know since they're hard to get a good look at.  Luckily it was just off the side of the road.
