This white-crowned sparrow has been frequenting our feederwatch area for several days. It appears to keep separated from other white-crowns and will remain near food and water sources for longer periods of time than others.

Yes, I am seeing the same thing at my feeder now and am extremely upset by this. I believe the young squirrels killed one of them yesterday. I live in Southern California, Ventura County, town of Camarillo. Two have died.
