White-crowned sparrows are common in winter here in the Valley. I see them often foraging along with juncos and the non-native house sparrows. They are just beautiful to watch. This painting is of a white-crowned sparrow perching on a berry bush that runs along a levee of Old River in Byron, CA. This painting is titled "A thorny perch", gouache 8.5"x11".
