We were in the yard the other day when a first-time visitor stopped by for a moment:

White Crowned Sparrow2

This is the first time I’ve seen a White Crowned Sparrow in our yard.  The contrast of the white and black on the head was clear.  This bird didn’t go to a feeder, but he did hover around the bird bath (though he never dove in).  And then after a couple of minutes he turned, gave me a quick look and nod, and was gone:

It’s always nice when new, friendly, curious guests stop by!
