White-crowned Sparrows appear each winter over much of North America to grace our gardens and favorite trails (they live in parts of the West year-round). The smart black-and-white head, pale beak, and crisp gray breast combine for a dashing look – and make it one of the surest sparrow identifications in North America. Watch for flocks of these sparrows scurrying through brushy borders and overgrown fields, or coax them into the open with backyard feeders. As spring approaches, listen out for this bird’s thin, sweet whistle.

    Grand catch of this little songster. We are honored by the presence of both these & the White-throats in our thicket. Sweet, Michael!

    A great capture of such a sweet bird. Reminds me of my favorite chickadees.
