White-crowned Sparrow

Zonotrichia leucophrys


At first I thought it was a Rufous Crowned sparrow or a Field Sparrow, but learned it is actually a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow. When birding it's important to look out for juvenile or immature individuals. Which can look quite a lot like different species. This bird fooled me :)
