I finally got some good photos of the cute birds I was talking about previously! They are white crowned sparrows and I love their stripey black and white capped heads. I have never seen these types of sparrows before. Normally I only get the hoards of house sparrows so it was cool to see a new type. My husband and kids think I'm a lunatic though. When I saw the bright flashes of black and white stripes I started squealing "what is that!?" But I don't care. I can't believe the variety of birds I have seen at my simple feeder this spring.
And Barbara I've been thinking of you ever since I saw these little birds!
