Good Monday Everyone -
 
This week I pay tribute to our feathered friends.  The subject of the photo is a White-Crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys), who I photographed near the Convention Centre at Coal Harbour on a May morning.
 
​Native to North America, "their breeding habitat is brushy areas across northern Canada and the western United States. The white-crowned sparrow is a very rare vagrant to western Europe. It has been sighted in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Norway.  In 2008 a white-crowned sparrow was spotted in Cley-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, England.  To commemorate the event an image of the bird was included in a window at St Margaret's Church."

Cheers, Tom
