You're going to have to go on my description rather than a picture because I haven't had the opportunity to get my camera out, but what is the little bird that has the body colourings of a sparrow but who's head is striped black-and-white? Like a cap.

Errrrr, head like a chickadee and body of a sparrow? Did you ask it "Who's your Daddy?"

It's not the same as the one I saw in the backyard the other day, White-Crowned Sparrow?

Seriously? What are the chances, eh? Now if one of the other bird people will weigh in to answer a question about this one? Is it common in these parts? Don't know whether I just haven't been looking, or whether they're new to the area, but I can't recall seeing one of these before.

White-crowned Sparrows are fairly common in our area during Migration. This time of year and Fall are when I usually spot them.

Thanks Hoodie. Odd, guess I just haven't noticed them before. I was just looking through the site I posted, guess I asked too soon. Nice migration maps on there.
