Most recent sparrow arrival White-crowned.




It is easy to see the origin of the name of this most recent little sparrow species. The white stripes on its crown appears to be especially wide on the one in these photos!Also characteristic of its appearance is its gray feathered body and its pink bill. About 4 of them appeared in Bird Alley on Monday and I have seen them around and about almost every day all week.

I've had about 4 pair of these. They are the cutest. I'm still waiting for the White Throated. No sign of them yet.
