I think this little bird that I spotted wading in the bog on my trail walk yesterday is a chipping sparrow. (Although if anyone knows a better ID, I would be glad to hear about it). It was such a cold day, all the birds seemed to be in hiding, and I didn’t blame them. A good book, a warm blanket, and a mug of cocoa sounded very inviting to me.
A confession and a conundrum
I have been struggling to find time for daily trail walks plus processing and posting the pictures. Sometimes it can be nearly a week between posts. However I would really like to post at least four times a week. So I asked myself this question: How can I manage my time to fit in four or five trail walks and at least four blog posts each week ? Since timeliness is impacted by my determination to process each picture and to make the effort to write well whatever I decide to write about my posts, I’ve decided to make a change in my posting process. For the next week or so (starting today, March 22nd), my solution to this conundrum is to pick one picture each day to post. Once I am posting on a regular schedule, I will reevaluate. I would love to hear from any bloggers who have encountered this dilemma. If that’s you, please leave a comment to share how you have resolved it.
Thanks for joining me on the trail today.
Note: I looked up the American tree sparrow, as Roz suggested in her comment. The tree sparrow and chipping sparrow do look a lot alike, but apparently this little one is an American tree sparrow. Thanks for the ID, Roz.
