White-crowned sparrow migration

It is the middle of summer in the Central Valley and the only birds in my backyard these days are house sparrows and mourning doves.  I always look forward to when the weather starts cooling down and cool weather birds start migrating.  White-crowned sparrows are one of these birds.  Alas, I can only paint one for now.  This one's titled "A thorny perch II".  "II" because I had painted one with the same title years ago.  I believe that painting is somewhere in Buffalo, NY.  Even my paintings migrate.
