White-crowned Sparrow most recent arrival

 This little White-crowned Sparrow was a delightful surprise outside my window this morning.  I checked its markings carefully as the other species of sparrow which wears a white-striped head, a white-throated sparrow was feeding near by, however the White-crowned sparrow does not wear a white bib at its throat as does rhe white-throated sparrow.

                         In the picture above please notice that the white stripes on the head of this little sparrow cross at the back.  Oh Happy Sparrow day!

Great photos of this sweet sparrow. We saw an eagle floating above the fields on the weekend and it rose higher until it met 4 other eagles! amazing! Have a great week. Pam
