White-crowned invasion!

Sibley says these are uncommon in eastern North America. Don’t tell these guys. I saw this gang of four White-crowned Sparrows in my parent’s back yard last week.

We even have a couple up here in our yard in Round Lake Beach. Check out the straddle action on this guy!

Lots of sparrows are difficult to identify (I’m looking at you, Vesper and Grasshopper. Or maybe I mean you, Lincoln’s and Savannah! Actually I have no idea, I can’t tell you guys apart. But I’m looking at you!). But White-crowned Sparrows are easy. Not to mention cute.

    …beautiful! White-crowned Sparrows are not that common here. They are winter visitors for us in Cincy. This winter I only had 2, so you’re lucky!! They are so sweet and beautiful…
