For bird photographers in southern Ontario, May and June is the time to look for northward migrating warblers, resplendent in their breeding plumage. Unfortunately scheduling didn’t allow me to get out for more than about an hour or two to look for warblers and as a result I don’t have any post worthy images to share. Hopefully next year! In lieu of warblers, here is a very common but also very pretty White Throated Sparrow.
White Throated Sparrows were first described in 1789 and are found in two different, genetically determined, morphs; white-crowned and the tan-crowned. The two morphs occur in about equal numbers and the interesting thing is that the birds virtually always pair up with their opposite morph.
