White-throated Sparrow

This guy seems to be saying, “hey, you looking at me?”  And, he’s right; I was looking at him---closely in fact.  His white throat and yellow eye brows separate him from the more common White-crowned Sparrow. From what I have read the White-throated Sparrow is an uncommon winter visitor here in the Willamette Valley, and come next month, he along with the more numerous Golden-crowned Sparrows will clear out of here and head north to Canada for the summer.
