White-crowned sparrows finding treasures in the rain



During a day of steady, soft rainfall, birds were out and about foraging in the nature patch of the garden.

I observed twelve white-crowned sparrows hopping around the garden, picking through dried grass, twigs and ground cover. They seemed to be finding treasures, probably worms, grubs and insects brought up to the surface by the constant rainfall.











The photos were taken through our window.

Three of the sparrows are very busy foraging.
