Golden-crowned Sparrow [Zonotrichia atricapilla] ~ #13

Golden-crowned Sparrow
Golden-crowned Sparrow ~ Colony Farm Regional Park ~ March 28, 2015

There was a new spot that I wanted to check out, Colony Farm Regional Park.  It’s actually pretty close to me, but had never been there.  I took advantage of a bit of clear sky on Saturday to go check it out.  The first birds we saw when we pulled up were a pair of Mallards sitting in the lawn close to a large puddle.  We took the Garden Trail and it was actually my son who spotted the sparrows in the grass.  I was quite pleased to see the gold splotches on their heads.  In my two years of taking pictures of birds this was only the second Golden-crowned Sparrow that I’ve captured.
