WHITECROWNED SPARROW

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

There have been just five ac­cepted ap­pear­ances of this North Amer­i­can ‘sparrow’ in the UK, and of these three ap­peared in the mid­dle weeks of May. So, if your des­tiny is to find a White-crowned Sparrow, this is the best month to ful­fil that des­tiny. They are grey, sparrow-like, bunting-like birds (North Amer­i­can ‘spar­rows’ are re­ally buntings), with black-and-white striped heads.
