Add Sparrow

Add the White-crowned Sparrow to the list of birds that feed on fennel seeds in the winter. Note how the bird crunches the seed in its beak to remove the outer shell before swallowing the seed germ. Although fennel is not a California native — it’s a native of Greece — it deserves a certificate of naturalization in the park for its services as bird habitat.

White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys)
