Groucho Marx Bird

Maybe Groucho reincarnated?

I was snapping a few quick shots on the back deck; I saw a black-headed bird hanging out on the railing. I didn’t look any closer until I downloaded the image from the camera and…lo and behold, Groucho is back!

This is actually a white-crowned sparrow, but due to the angle he holds his head at (staring down his beak), I did not get a shot of the white crown any better than this one, where it is slightly visible.

Taken with the Sony a7r IV and Canon 300mm lens, neither of which I have sold yet, for a very simple reason: not even trying, because quick shots like this can still be had while I hang on to it. :)
