I wish I knew what kind of little bird this was. Can anyone help me identify it? White-crowned Sparrows appear each winter over much of North America to grace our gardens and favorite trails (they live in parts of the West year-round). They have migrated south from the far northern and western regions of Canada and Alaska. (H/t to my friend Alma for the identification.)
I caught her frolicking among the finches during one of their wild parties. Later there was this quiet moment - sitting in the water, soaking up the sun, maybe thinking she had landed on a beach in Mexico.
We all lose our way at some point in our lives. As humans, we can seek or receive help, guidance and love from other human beings. I hope for this little creature losing its way doesn't prove to be fatal.I hope I can lure her back. I think I am going to put the feeder out again.
The extra: A long-body view of this little gem.
