White-Crowned Sparrow

The bird on the right is a juvenile. Easy to tell as the crown has not moulted into the characteristic, and distinguishing, black and white banding ( as seen in the left bird). If you place seed out in the yard these birds will congregate and you should get a chance to see the adults and juvenile birds. Since White-crowned sparrows are 'di-morphic', it is all but impossible to distinguish the male from the female.
