Artist's Description

(Zonotrichia albicollis)

Photographed at Point Pelee National Park, Ontario
Nikon D90 with 70-300 mm VR lens

Crisp facial markings make the White-throated Sparrow an attractive bird as well as a hopping, flying anatomy lesson. There’s the black eyestripe, the white crown and supercilium, the yellow lores, the white throat bordered by a black whisker, or malar stripe. They’re also a great entrée into the world of birdsong, with their pretty, wavering whistle of “Oh-sweet-Canada-Canada-Canada”. These forest sparrows breed mostly across Canada, but they’re familiar winter birds across most of eastern and southern North America and California.
