I had a nice surprise as I ate lunch on our deck today.?? I've been
watching for lingering White-throated Sparrows to see how long they stay
around (last one seen or heard a couple of days ago).?? I spotted a sparrow
on the ground with bright black and white head striping and immediately
realized it was a White-crowned Sparrow.

I do the same for Juncos, White-crowned [WCSP] & White-throated sparrows
[WTSP]. Juncos are the first to leave and it seems 4/12 was their 2019
last date. WTSPs usu outstay the WCSPs with both being gone by 5/15.

Advice to Jim Nelson: Move WEST young man...we [FREDCO] have WCSPs every
