The white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) is a medium-sized sparrow native to North America. Adults are 18 cm (7 in) long and have black and white stripes on their head, a gray face, brown streaked upper parts and a long tail. The wings are brown with bars and the underparts are gray. Their bill is pink or yellow. They are similar in appearance to the white-throated sparrow but do not have the white throat markings. Wikipedia
