White Crowned Sparrow

This is my first time I am linking up with the World Bird Wednesday meme, sounds like a great place to check out a lot of different birds.



Also linking up with Wordless Wednesday .

  If you like you can read my first comment about the White Crowned Sparrow. Thanks to the great hosts of both the World Bird Wednesday and Wordless Wednesday. Also, thanks for stopping by my post.

  4. The White Crowned Sparrow shows in my field guide as a winter bird for me. It has a neat white pattern on its head, yellow bill and has dark lores. It is similiar to the Whited Throated Sparrow and the Golden Crowned Sparrow. This is one sparrow I am able to id with no problems.

  8. Glad you joined in the WBW meme! What a pretty sparrow. All I have had so far is a chipping sparrow but we had a new one yesterday. I haven't identified it just yet, but am working on it! Beautiful photo!

  10. I am a bird lover & feed them, but their feeders are too far for my little camera to get good pics, thanks about the new meme info, in case I can capture one :)
    Stay warm, I hate the ice too, it is worse!

  17. Welcome to Wordless Wednesday. Sorry I don't have a bird picture for you this week. Nice clear picture of a white crown sparrow so I might be able to identify it if I see one personally.

  18. Sparrows are just "little brown jobs" here in Australia - good to see some with a bit of colour!

  22. Eileen,
    I saw this wonderful sparrow for the first time two years ago in the spring when I left a pile of branches in my back yard and suddenly there they were. Spring seems a long ways off just now, your photo gives me hope!

  23. That is a gorgeous white crowed sparrow. Great capture.

    I only see them at my feeders during migration and sometimes I'm lucky and can get a photo of them... if they would stay still!

    I didn't know about World Bird Wednesday. I'll have to check that out since I take a lot of photos of birds.

  26. Hi Eileen, What a handsome little sparrow. Clear to see why he was so named. Excellent sharp photographs. Have a wonderful day!

  27. What a lovely sparrow, Eileen, I'm amazed at how well you captured it.

  30. Very nice picture -- we used to have the white- and yellow-crowns in our yard in Oregon -- they liked the brush pile in the corner.

    I'm glad you joined World Bird Wednesday - you definitely belong there! (I am there to learn; you can teach!) Thanks for sharing.

  31. Excellent shot! This little guy is a summer bird for us.

  32. Wonderful shot! I always love to see these birds and to listen to their beautiful song. In Point Reyes National Seashore (my favorite local park) there is a resident population of these birds. Interestingly enough, there are 7 distinct subpopulations in the park that "speak" different dialects of their songs.

  33. Beautiful little sparrow, I don't think we have them in this area.

  34. Nice shot, Eileen! I love your header photo: the moon presiding over a quiet evening landscape.

  35. I've never seen or heard of that kind of sparrow. We have the non-native kind here.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
