Shy little sparrow

This winter plumage Golden-crowned Sparrow is one of my old west coast buddies. It summers in British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska. In the winter, you will find them along coastal Washington, Oregon, throughout California and Baja California. This little guy was found in the Santa Cruz mountains outside of San Jose.©2011 ShootingMyUniverse
