American Tree Sparrow

American Tree Sparrow Spizella arborea

    This handsome American Tree Sparrow was feeding on a pile of sunflower seeds left by some kind soul on a low concrete wall on Three Bridges Road near to the Conestogo River dam. Its bicoloured mandible, one of the identifying characters of this species, is clearly visible.
