You may still see white-crown sparrows migrating through Orange County as they make their way north to their summer breeding grounds in the northwestern part of the United States, Canada, and Alaska. And there are pockets along the California coast where these birds live year-round.
I hope my little friends have a safe flight. I'll look for them again in September.
