The small field sparrows (Spizella pusilla) are some of the most delightful birds to watch. Their pink conical bills, white eyerings and rusty crowns bob up and down in the grass as they search for grass seeds and insects.

The Filming the Feathers video was shot in October and April 2016, and in April 2018. The music, a tenor recorder arrangement of Joseph Dall'Abaco's capriccios for cello, is performed by Ernesto Schmied.

The photos are from 2016 and 2018, and were all photographed in Central Park.
