Golden-crowned Sparrow

What can I say? The home owners from Findlay allowed birders to view this avian anomaly for just today and tomorrow, and it just wouldn't wait. The first- time ever, Golden-crowned Sparrow visits Ohio and gave us spectacular views from the homeowner's backyard. If you have not seen it, I urge you to go tomorrow. Good Luck!

Directions can be found in detail on Toledo's Rare Birds.


  1. WOW, great bird. Don't you wonder how it got to Ohio??

  2. There was some talk in the field that the Mountain Bluebird and the Golden-crowned Sparrow showed up at about the same time, on the heels of a big blow from out west.

    Any one care to comment on that as a possibility?
