White-Crowned Sparrow

It’s been a typical Rocky Mountain spring day; a little rain, some snow, and grey clouds with a spattering of sunshine. Kind of a stay inside and look out the windows sort of day. And I am glad I looked out the windows. Today we had three White-crowned Sparrows show up; two males and a female. They seem to like the ground cover that grows in the driveway.They look just like a regular sparrow except for the white stripes on their head.

White-crowned SparrowThis picture was taken last spring and isn’t all that great. They don’t sit still for very long and I have yet to see one come to the feeder. It appears that they prefer to forage on the ground. Definately a cute little bird.
