I have been travelling a bit again. On May 9th we
had some very welcome visitors a small group of
White-Crowned Sparrows.

"They catch your eye early, those rising black
Out of the water oaks at dusk or those skimmimg
The grey lakes at dawn. You know you must learn
Them by name,"

What pretty birds! Quite fancy for a sparrow. Guess you can tell we don't have them here.

Hi Sandy

Yes they are really striking and fairly easy to identify with the stripes. They seem to be fairly regular visitors in the spring.
