I was looking at my post yesterday, and I'm sure that anyone who looked at the picture thought, what the heck?  And they were too kind to tell me that instead of White-throated I said  White-crowned.  I also have a tendency to bronze the Brown-headed Cowbird and to make a Common Yellowthroat more golden.  Thank you for your forebearance.Michelle

I saw a White-crowned Sparrow  at the Water Resources Center feeder on the east side of the building,  hanging out with Spotted Towhees and Golden-crowned Sparrows.
