Lunch-Box Birds

Golden-crowned Sparrow

Golden-crowned Sparrow

I want to call them “lunch-box” birds: those birds I see from my car while parked on some shrubby parking strip eating my lunch.

Yesterday I saw several at Marymoor Park, where I drove to sit and enjoy a take-out pint of curry soup. Entering the dirt parking lot, I noticed a small flock of birds in a tree. Turned out they were Golden-crowned Sparrows.

By the time I parked, they were on the ground close by, finding their own lunch. I rolled down my window and, with my camera in one hand and plastic spoon in the other, was able to snap some nice close-ups.
