White-crowned Sparrow

I can usually expect to hear the little chips of White-crowned Sparrows in the winter.  I see them during the summer, but they’re not as common.  I can always find them in the winter on barbed wire.

Someone at Farmington Bay scattered seeds on the ground, which made for a nice photo opportunity.  The white stripes are on the adults and the brown stripes are on the juveniles.

I wonder if the white is for breeding and the juveniles have been camouflage until they’re ready to breed.  The brown is pretty fetching.
