White Crowned Sparrows

posted in: Birds | 0

Have you looked closely at the sparrows?  There are many different varieties that visit our gardens and many times we tend to just refer to them as sparrows instead of their actual name.  One of the most distinctive sparrows that is easily identified is the white crowned sparrow.

The head has black and white stripes on it.  They are ground feeders but also visit our flat feeder and seed feeder.

These sparrows pass through our garden in fairly large groups at the beginning of spring and towards the middle of fall probably on their way to and from their breeding grounds in northern Canada.

This is one of the few birds where the male and female look just about the same.

The white crowned sparrows are passing through the garden now.  Have you spotted any of these lens friends in your garden?

I’m sharing with Wild Bird Wednesday and  Nature Notes.
