White-throated Sparrows

I always think this is a handsome little bird, a White-throated Sparrow. The sparrow count has shifted in Bird Alley and rather than there being a dominance of Chipping Sparrows the numbers have changed and we now have more White-throated Sparrows feeding here each day. Still making a daily appearance are a few Song Sparrows and some day soon Tree Sparrows will arrive from their northern breeding grounds and a few will remain, taking up residence around our feeder areas for the winter.

I love the shot in the tree against the fall leaves. It looks like he is just waiting for you to take his photograph :-) I think this sparrow and the White-Crowned are two of the prettiest. Mine don't always seem to have such a bright throat, but I seldom get a shot this nice and close to see it. I wish my sparrows would return before October ends for the count!

Nice shots.Take good care of these birds,I'm looking forward to seeing them again in spring.

One of my favorite sparrows, not only for their bright headgear, but of course, that wonderful Sam Peabody song! Here is southern-most Ontario, we're right on the 'edge' between winter and summer range, but so far in three years of living here, I haven't seen any in winter. I listen for them every spring.

While terribly short in time, I had to make a stop!
Loved the shots with Birds and Berries! And these sparrows are gorgeous - the pattern on the head is pretty cool!
Cheers, Klaus

I do love the first photo. The White-throat could not look more handsome! I saw my first Tree Sparrow this week. Winter is coming for sure.

I like the tree photo. Such a cool pose. Mine haven't shown up yet, and probably won't till snow falls, and that could be as early as Monday, Tuesday, and/or Wednesday next week. UGH Such a pretty little bird.

I've only see a white-throated a couple of time and I just saw a chippy...it better get going south as we have had some wet snow already

That's the prettiest sparrow I've ever seen! Our sparrows in Illinois are pretty drab but I don't believe we have any here in Hawaii.... at least I haven't seen any....yet.

They certainly are handsome little birds and first class photos of them.
