Taken this morning in my community garden plot in Palo Alto, California ... I think the bird on the right is a White-Crowned Sparrow, and I figured the one on the left was the female of the species ... but now I'm not sure. Anyone can help me out here? Thanks, if you can!
Yes, the bird on the right is a White-crowned and it very well could be a female. Most North American Sparrow genders look the same. There will be individual differences in size and coloring, but it doesn't indicate gender.
The bird on the left is a Fox Sparrow, a great little bird. We so rarely see them. You got a very nice picture.
