Sparrows

I think this is a White-throated Sparrow because of the yellow lores.

Zonotrichia albicollis 



Photos were taken at 8:30 a.m.  This is usually a good time to observe the birds, and it's also lovely to be outside in the freshness of the early morning.  The smaller birds can be seen hopping about in the bushes looking for food or else in the branches of the birch trees and saskatoon bushes.
