Winter in New York City means the arrival of white-throated sparrows, Zonotrichia albicollis.
It’s easy to see how they got their name, but up close, one can appreciate the rest of their beautiful markings. With their bright yellow lores, black head stripes, gray cheeks, and warm, chestnut wings, these color-blocked birds are a welcome sight in the drab city winter.
