Golden-crowned Sparrow – Crown of Gold

Crown of Gold

     While photographing along the Pacific Coast recently, I came across a flock of Golden-crowned Sparrows.  The members of this lively group were frenetically foraging along a brushy thicket line.  As a gentle rain spat a sporadic spray through the atmosphere, this sparrow showed off its crown of gold.
