Tuesday

White-crowned Sparrow

I didn't have to go far to find this White-crowned Sparrow.
He posed for me in the parking lot of a trail/park that I frequently visit. 
Heritage Park is Blacksburg's largest park with 169 acres of natural area.
It's one of my FAVORITE places!

I usually hear these little ones before I see them.
A link to their songs/calls - HERE 

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.
