I did not see the white crown at the time but most of my views were looking
up. I've attached a photo of the enlarged area of the crown. The original
post had lower res photos to save space. The full res photo in my eBird
submission ( doesn't allow you to
zoom in. My first thought was spots of light as well but zooming in it
doesn't seem so. I chased PLVI sounds around the campground that day so
all photos were not necessarily the same bird.
