Sassy sparrow fledgling

This little savannah sparrow fledgling was incredibly vocal outside my tent at a remote field site in Alaska. I couldn't help but go explore when I heard him. Eventually I found him in the grass, tucked away not too far from the nest, just learning how to take on the world on his own.
