Not sure of the exact time, but mid-November to early December of last year, we saw huge flocks of immature White-crowned Sparrows near Farris, Oklahoma (half way on a east-west line between Antlers and Atoka). The flocks of 10-50+ birds where always 90% WCS with a few Juncos and White-throateds in the group. The thing that amazed me was that I couldn't find a single mature WCS in these flocks. I had never witnessed this "grouping" of any WCS before or since. Has anyone else ever observed this immature "grouping" of WCS?
