Just saw two White-crowned sparrows at the feeders.  Our two previous winters here there were always a few in the large mixed flock of sparrows (mostly Golden-crowned and a couple of White-throated).  This winter that flock was reduced to no more than 3 or 4 Golden-crowned at a time, one White-throated for a few days last fall and no White-crowned until today.  The flock would dissipate in the spring with only a few Golden-crowns and maybe an occasional White-crowned during the summer.  It will be interesting to see if these two WCs stay for very long.Carma Henry, Logsdon Ridge
