White-throated Sparrow (Zontrichia albicollis)
Usually these handsome sparrows stay close yo the ground but this wonderfully cooperative one sat on some tree branches at my eye level and fairly close to where I was standing.
Dreaming of black oil sunflower seeds?
In summer they eat copious amounts of insects and some berries but now their diet consists mostly of seeds.
Considering his options?
Most White-throated Sparrows spend their summers in Canada and their winters in the U.S. But a few live all year close to Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway.
