The White-throated Sparrow is a species of New World sparrow that breeds across much of Canada and spends the winter across much of the eastern and southeastern United States. There is also a population that winters along the west coast of California.
White-throated Sparrows are little brown birds that are named for a patch of white feathers found under the face. Adults have prominent yellow markings between the eye and the beak.
The White-throated Sparrow has a low, mournful song. One popular mnemonic for the song is "Poor Sam Peabody."
