At Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, I captured a White-throated Sparrow feasting on buds from an unidentified tree. Other bird species were also spotted enjoying the buds. I photographed the sparrow from the comfort of my pickup truck, using a bean bag to stabilize my camera and lens on the window.
