A Gold-crowned Sparrow poses for Craig Tooley.

Craig Tooley has a knack for getting birds to stay still long enough for him to get a great photo. This Gold-crowned Sparrow obliged.

Here on the coast, it is much more likely to see a White-crowned Sparrow.

I love this photo of a White-crowned Sparrow singing. To hear this bird's call, here is a link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/White-crowned_Sparrow/sounds

Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Craig's nature photography, here is the link to his website: www.ruffimage.com
