This is a Gold Crowned Sparrow, which I believe is found on the lower part of the West coast of Canada. The name is obvious. Sparrows are one of my favourite subjects, and in more view often overlooked by avian photographers.

Thanks to all who viewed and commented on my last posting of the Spotted Towhee - much appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a cracking little bird Stan. Lovely detailed plumage and so well presented in the fork of that perch. Spot on.

Good capture, Stan--- We have a bird like this-- white throated sparrow-- has a gold "crown" -- also a "white crowned" sparrow-- think they are all related--
Yours, a wonderful perch as they are mostly seen on the ground!

I don't get it, Stan..... why is it called a 'Gold Crowned Sparrow?' Oh, wait, perhaps if I adjust the filter... I was used to your vivid photos! Smile

This is a wonderful treat of such a delightful bird.

All the best!
