The sweet song of the White-crowned Sparrow greets us each morning brightening our day as he calls out from the central courtyard of The Lodge here at the Dallas Retirement Village. I only need to step out on our second floor balcony to see him and take a photo as I did this morning. Because he has been at this for some time now, as a matter of fact two weeks, I assume he is doing his best to attract the attention of a female. White-crowned Sparrows make their nest in small shrubs, and because our central courtyard is landscape with lots of shrubs, I'm starting to think if I am very observant I should be able to spot a female coming and going from a shrub. Keep checking, I will report any procress I make.
