Portrait of A White-throated Sparrow

Zonotrichia albicollis.With some seeds still a-bill. These leaf-kicking sparrows should be around all winter, their “oh-sweet-canada” or, for patriots, “oh-sam-peabody” call echoing through the bare woods. This is one of the tan-striped forms. The white-striped forms have a bold white supercillium (eyebrow).(If you strictly translated this bird’s binomial, you’d get “white-banded thrush,” but whatever.)
