WHITE CROWNED SPARROW
The White Crowned Sparrow is small and gray, but quite distinctive with its bold white and black striped head and gray wings marked with two white wing-bars.

Depending on the subspecies, they can have orange-yellow or reddish-brown beaks. Their youngs plummage is streaked until they get close to adulthood. Then it changes to a similar plummage to a full grown adult, with brown and tan head stripes, rather than black and white.

 

Habitats vary with subspecies, but in general they require a patchy mosaic of bare ground and shrub areas for breeding. White Crowned Sparrows are general found in flocks of their own and other species, outside breeding season. They feed on seeds, grass, buds and arthropods...
