Savannah sparrow, Discovery Park south meadow

Discovery Park's south meadow is one of my favorite spots in Seattle. You walk out of the woods to see a broad, rolling stretch of grass and shrubs, leading to a bluff overlooking Puget Sound. This time of year, almost every bush or tree sticking out of the grass is occupied by a male song bird singing with gusto.
This morning, joggers and strollers heard from white-crowned sparrows, a goldfinch, and savannah sparrows, such as this fine fellow.
