Sparrow Ridge?

Friends, this tiny bird is a white-throated sparrow visiting Hawk Ridge sometime in October.  I love the little yellow spot in front of his eye, the image below is a close-up of his head.  You can see the new bracelet that the banders have given him .  Some of these little birds are captured more than once cause they tend to hang around the bird feeders.  Lots of birds follow Hawk Ridge on their migration routes, so maybe Hawk Ridge should be called Bird Ridge.  Just kidding of course, the more spectacular birds always bring the crowds. til Tomorrow MJ
