Here we have three sparrows. I know that when I first started really looking at birds about eight years ago when I was a graduate student at Miami University, I pretty much thought all sparrows looked the same. I have since come to different conclusions. Here are three very common sparrows attracted to feeders that can easily be seen in central Ohio during the winter. The song sparrow can also be seen year round, while the American Tree Sparrow and the White-throated sparrow will soon leave for more northern latitudes.
