Golden Crowned Sparrow??


Just saw a bird on my platform feeder that looked like it was a White Crowned sparrow, but got out my binoculars and saw that it had a distinct yellow crown bordered by large black streaks just above the eye.   Had a plain buff/gray breast and two light wing bands.  

From what my books says they aren't supposed to be here.   Do they come through occasionally during migration? 

I'm in South Meridian just S of Camping World...a semi rural area with a canal bordering the property.
