I just had a Golden-crowned Sparrow at my feeder in Powell Butte, Crook County. In my records for Central Oregon, I only have one other entry for Golden-crowned Sparrow in the last week of May (5/28/07, Awbrey Hall Burn, Rich Hoyer) and two records for June (6/19/90, Indian Ford CG, Danny Bystrak and 6/23/02, Squaw Cr. Rd., Howard Horvath). Those other three records were all from the mountains. It's very unusual to see this species this late in the lowlands.
