I thought this sparrow was a white-crowned sparrow, but it has yellow on it's head. I saw another with just white. Is this a white-crowned? It doesn't seem to have a white throat. Seen today in Olympia, WA.Posted Image

Thanks. I guess I should say, "Duh". I have seen the golden-crowned before, but not at my house. I think there is a white-crowned here, too. Unfortunately, I have misplaced my Peterson guide. Thanks again.
