Young White-Crowned

White-crowned Sparrow, juvenile

This is the first White-crowned Sparrow I’ve seen this fall, and it’s a young one. It was perched on the north side of the park, with the early morning sun warming its back.

They’re quite remarkable birds, as I’ve written here previously. When they migrate they can cover 300 miles in a night, and go without sleep for two weeks.
