Golden-crowned Sparrow--prealternate molt
The Golden-crowned Sparrow that arrived in my yard on 12 Nov has been undergoing its prealternate molt for the last couple weeks. The molt looks to be more or less complete, so I suspect it will be leaving soon, but it was cool to have as a yard bird for six months!

Photo from today, 5 May 2018. (For a photo from 2 months ago, click here: http://azbird.net/sightings/showthread.php?tid=8890)
