White-Crowned Sparrow

There are about four "races" of the White-Crowned in the Kern Valley area. The most common will be the Zonotrichia l., gambeli (pictured) and the Zonotrichia l., nutallii. They are difficult to differentiate: the differences are in the color of the bill, the lores and supra-loral and supraciliary plumage.
