Bird of the Week – Golden-crowned Sparrow

One last sparrow, and WC has saved a handsome one for last. The Golden-crowned Sparrow is easily identified by the strong golden line on the crown of its head.

The gold crown contrasts nicely with the otherwise black head. It also has easily recognized call, “oh-deary-me.” It’s a bit secretive, lurking in dense brush, but the males perch on shrub tops during breeding season, to establish territories and attract mates. This bird was photographed on spring migration on the Copper River Delta.

Camera geek stuff: f5.7, 1/320, ISO250.

    Texas passed HB 40 which prohibits local gubmints from banning fracking in their jurisdictions. Whatever fresh water hasn’t been contaminated,soon will be and the cities can’t do anything about it. Goobernor Gregg A-Butt has said he will sign the damn thing. Meanwhile,Texas just had two more earthquakes of 3 and 4 magnitude. Do wingnuts give a shit? No,because every climate change denier knows it is just god showing his/her disrespect for the Muslim Socialist in the WH and all whiny Liberals. Prolly even connect it to Benghazi.

    Rilly cannot believe that there are so damn many stupid sonsabitches that can get elected and then are allowed to piss all over all citizens so korporate amerika can make a few bucks and destroy Earth at the same time. The whole country must be full of the dumbest goddamn idiots the world has ever known and they mostly vote wingnuts while Libs sit on their asses and watch destruction happen all around. Get off your asses and vote these terrorists out of office before it is too late. You only have one habitable? planet. Let’s try to keep it that way for our children’s children’s children.

    This may well be my favorite of your Alaskan sparrows, WC. Thanks so much!
