    White-throated Sparrow

    Was shocked to see this one today. They are common in the East, but here in California they are scarce migrants and winter visitors with very few after early May. White-throated Sparrows are famous for negative assortative mating between the two color morphs. White-striped morphs such as this...

    They are an uncommon winter visitor and migrant in California. They are famous for negative assortative mating between the two color morphs. White-striped morphs prefer to mate with tan-striped morphs and vice versa. However, this species does not cleanly separate into tan and white striped...

    I think this might be a yongster, but it really needs confirmation.

    Heard his beautiful spring song in the trees behind our home, but could not spot him. Then looked out front under the feeder, surprise! Probably migrating up to Northern Minnesota.

    White-throated sparrow visits again

    This guy shows up in my yard more and more as the plants are withering and going to seed. It looks like he's lagging behind, as most of his kind have moved south for the winter already.

    The cooler weather is bringing some new faces to my yard on the Connecticut shoreline. This guy, a white-throated sparrow, just showed up when the native plants started releasing seeds and spores. If you look closely at his beak, he's been munching on the pokeweed berries in the yard - which are...

    This one dropped into our yard for a couple of days, but seems to have moved on. They are an uncommon winter visitor and migrant in California. They are famous for negative assortative mating between the two color morphs. White-striped morphs prefer to mate with tan-striped morphs and vice...

    This species is a common winter visitor to East Texas usually departing by April. They are famous for negative assortative mating between the two color morphs. White-striped morphs prefer to mate with tan-striped morphs and vice versa. This appears to be a white-striped morph although it still...

    White-throated Sparrow

    Although the White-throated Sparrow is still widespread and common, with an estimated 10-20 million pairs range-wide, they are declining through much of their breeding range. The oldest recorded White-throated Sparrow was at least 14 years, 11 months old, when it was recaptured and rereleased...

    New World Sparrow?

    I had no idea that the White-throated Sparrow is now listed as the passerine bird of the New World sparrow family Passerellidae. With so many years of birding there is still so much learning to be done.
