White-crowned Sparrow


The (Gambel’s) White-crowned Sparrow (Scientific name: Zonotrichia leucophrys) is a medium-sized sparrow native to North America. Their breeding habitat is brushy areas across northern Canada and the western United States. White-crowned sparrows nest either low in bushes or on the ground under shrubs and lay three to five brown-marked gray or greenish-blue eggs. (Wiki). This bird attracted my attention by chirping insistently while we were walking towards the lookout point to see the elephant seals. I bet he wanted to be clicked 😉

Clicked at Point Reyes in July/2017.
