White Crowned Sparrow

Last        Next            Return To Woodland Birds 

 

The White-crowned Sparrow is a very pretty bird with bold black and white stripes on White Crowned Sparrow By Robert Loganits head.

It has a clear, gray breast and belly, long tail, and wings marked with two white wing-bars.

The beak is orange yellow to reddish brown depending on the subspecies.

Young birds are streaked overall until August, when they take on a juvenile plumage similar to the adult, they have brown and tan head stripes rather than black and white, which they keep until the spring. 

These birds come to our feeders in large groups and are a real joy to watch, especially in the spring when they are in the mating mood.
