This spring I have been fascinated with sparrows. There are so many varieties in my area and I hope to photograph every one! This beautiful white-crowned sparrow has been visiting my backyard feeder for a couple of weeks. The beautiful black and white crown of this sparrow really stands out. At first only one sparrow would come, then three. Most of the time they would be foraging on the ground beneath the feeders. Recently, they come to the feeders instead feeding on the ground. I was very happy to add this beauty to my list, but my hunt for more sparrow species will continue.
