White-crowned Sparrow

This White-crowned Sparrow, so named for the striking black-and-white stripes on its head, landed on the ground near where I was sitting.  Less shy than most birds, it seemed almost curious as to what I was doing and quite willing to be photographed.

 

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.  They went out and happened to things.”  ~Leonardo da Vinci
