Sparrows

Lincoln’s sparrow

Today on the way home from work I managed to get out in the sunshine for a few minutes on 134th Ave near the old Van Lierop’s Farm to look for sparrow flocks and hopefully a FOY Pierce goldfinch.  No luck on the goldfinch, but I did manage a nice look at lots of sparrows.  The best flock was 40-50 crowned sparrows, nearly equally split between Golden-crowned and White-crowned, with a brief glimpse at a White-throated sparrow.  One Lincoln’s sparrow popped up for a nice look and a photo, and the light was nice on the crowned sparrows, so I enjoyed the stop.
