Last week I spotted a rare visitor to my garden!
Golden-crowned sparrows spend winters along the Pacific coast.
By mid-May they migrate to Western Canada and Alaska where they nest.
They feed on seeds and insects below feeders and in underbrush.
Moments later a second sparrow arrived!
This little guy was sporting a mohawk!
Their golden crowns are especially bright during mating season.
They foraged around the garden for several days.
Then they were gone.
Safe travels, Golden-crowned Sparrows!
