White-Throated Sparrow, July 5, 2017

ABC Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday
Z is for Zonotrichia albicollis - White-throated Sparrow
Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, March 9, 2017
White-throated Sparrows, Zonotrichia albicollis, are migratory birds seen across much of North America except parts of the western United States. When I saw this one in March in Tennessee it was probably on the way to its breeding grounds in Canada.

Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, March 9, 2017
They eat a wide variety of seeds, fruit, and insects. You will most often see them on the ground, scratching in leaf litter for insects.

Have a wonderful day!
