Familiar feeder birds in my PA yard in winter, these guys raise their families in the mountains to the north.
White throated sparrow
This White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) was seen and photographed while hiking on the High Trail at the Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center (CCNHC) in Denton, Texas. The region was still in the grip of winter and the northern visiting sparrows were in evidence throughout.
A pair of them. This one came second. The first was constantly preening itself (rubbing its head around its body and wings). It did this for the whole time I was watching (15 minutes or so).
The White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) is a passerine bird of the American sparrow family Emberizidae.
