|White-throated Sparrow, Zonotrichia albicollis|
I've gone on to see many white-throated sparrows both in Ohio and Maine, where I captured this image in early October. Also residents of the northern coniferous forests like the Pine Siskin, these birds are regular common winter visitors here in central Ohio. I've been encountering flocks of a dozen or so birds on my daily lunch break walk around the Delaware Wildlife area. I encounter them most often in thickets and edge habitats. It's neat to think that there is a chance, all be it minuscule, that I might encounter the same bird in Ohio that I may have photographed during the summer in the woods of Maine.
