My first crowned sparrow of the fall just arrived this afternoon in my backyard around 1pm, but it was a White-crowned Sparrow, not a Golden-crowned. A bit of a surprise, but I'll take it!

Once again we have reached that part of the fall when the crowned sparrows are about to return. Your first Golden-crowned Sparrow should land in your backyard sometime this coming week! Time to buy some extra seed!
