Golden-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia atricapilla)

Another beauty from Canada, I believe this is the Golden-crowned Sparrow.. I might be wrong thou, so please correct me if I'm wrong


Alaskan gold miners along the trails called this bird Weary Willie, because of its call which sounded like I'm so weary, (or 'oh-dear-me' ).

Hi Everton,

How nice that you found this Golden-crowned Sparrow in Canada since they don't make it down to Arizona. Looks like he was talking to you as you snapped the picture. Nice pose, colors and details.


I have seen a sparrow with a golden crown for the first time, Everton.
Nature is so full of surprises.
It is a good natural shot in which you have avoided to over-do the colours.
Well done and TFS.
