Since receiving a wake up call about joining
this group from a note given me by Paul Didier from Jason Beason's
Tumacanbac trip, I decided to make my move. Now I see reports from several of my
friends that I may not otherwise have been aware of. Thanks, Jason. That is how
I learned of the Golden-crowned Sparrow spotted by Jason and got details from
Rich. On my return visit on Feb. 22 to the "Great Horned Owl site"
on 19 Rd. N. of O Rd. I found what was probably
the only flock of White-crowns in the immediate area. And with a little patience here was the Golden-crown. It is no doubt part
of that wintering flock. And papa GHOW even gave a hoot at midday.
Glad to be aboard.
