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.


  1. I hope you're not getting tired of sparrows.

  2. I love all your birdies..... great photos.

    I'm still here...working my way through your blog...from "intro" to present day just having fun in here. Think I'll go get my coffee and then come back to continue......
