White-crowned Sparrow singing, caught in the act by coastal photographer Craig Tooley

Even though it's winter, we've been hearing birdsong on the Mendonoma Coast. Craig Tooley photographed this White-crowned Sparrow and is kindly allowing me to share his photo with you here. This Sparrow looks like he's quite a singer!

To see more of Craig's wonderful nature photos, here's the link to his web site:
And to hear the sound of this bird, here the link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology:

I usually refer to all small wild birds as "sparrows." It's good to see I'm right once in a while!

I sometimes think of small birds as finches! There are flocks of little birds visiting our property now - Yellow-rumped Warblers. Their nickname is Butter Butt, which make me smile.
