White-Throated Sparrows of The Vermilon River
Classic View of A White-Throated Sparrow
Showing White and Black Cap
The White-Throated Sparrow is a really handsome fellow, and seems to be found more in the fringe of the wetlands in my experience anyway. In terms of size he is larger than the house sparrow and I think smaller than the White-Crowned Sparrow. I think I'm amazed at the number and variety of sparrows in the area, but it is perhaps the amount of edible berries and seeds. For more views of these fellows see the Archives.
