Reed About Sparrows
A White-crowned Sparrow blends into some faded reeds this Thanksgiving at Bosque del Apache.
Read about White-crowned Sparrows ( http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/BirdGuide/White-crowned_Sparrow_dtl.html ) , they are fasicnating birds. For starters, some are bilingual. The young males learn songs from their immediate environment the first part of their lives. Since they don't move much dialects form and ones that live on the edge of two dialects may sing both. Yup... birds are cool!
