Weekly Sparrow Spotlight


The White-crowned Sparrow is another uncommon visitor to the east coast who one would be unlikely to confuse with another sparrow. It’s large size and bold black and white head stripes give this sparrow a unique appearance. Fall juveniles have brown stripes in place of the black. Look for this conspicuous sparrow in brushy habitats and woodland edges.
