White-Crowned Sparrows

We have a small flock now of these little guys, but they've been camera-shy! Yesterday I was finally able to capture them, though with only moderate results.

Aren't they cute? Like a little flock of chipmunks dashing around out there. Three white stripes and four black ones certainly give them a jaunty air.

Still no sign of grosbeaks and orioles. Got to get out and look for wildflowers! Damp and drizzly today after some rain yesterday-- so it's great lichen weather too.
