Golden-crowned sparrow in the ivy
The golden-crowned sparrows seem to have found a nice winter home around our garden.
I look forward every winter to seeing these cute little visitors.
They seem to always find food in the patio garden beds and the yard.
And when the robins take a break from their ivy berry meals, these sparrows like to just soak in the warmth of the sun between rainstorms.
This sparrow spent at least fifteen minutes just relaxing on the ivy vines.
At the onset of summer, these sparrows head for the tundra and shrublands of British Columbia and Alaska, where they breed.
Apparently, little is known of their breeding habits there.
