American Tree Sparrow

If it has a brownish- rusty crown, a bicoloured bill with yellow on the lower part, and it has a dark spot on the middle of its unstreaked breast; then you are looking at an American Tree Sparrow. These little sparrows of the north migrate from their sub-arctic breeding grounds in Northern Canada and Alaska to winter in our regions as well as areas further south. These little sparrows are daily visitors to our feeder area.
