A blog for sharing my getting to know birds as I learn from my meetings with them! These will mostly be Australian, but will include overseas birds that I meet when I travel.
The blog will just give birds added on a particular day with a page for each bird included so please look at the pages as they will have more photos and text that a post!
White-crowned Sparrow - Zonotrichia leucophrys
San Diego zoo, a wild bird in the grounds, 21.2.2014, 1 bird identified. Notes:
The crown is distinctive for adults, but apparently young birds are brown and buff. Based on location, this is probably sub-species nuttalli.
