Default Golden Crowned Sparrow

This little bird was underneath a bush pecking into the grass for food. I was able to take a few good shots, same pose anyway. This is one of them. With the help from my friend Don, who happens to be a birder, I am able to ID this bird.

Default Making a mess

This little guy was making a mess of himself with grass sticking on his head and always something in his beak.
