Description

The clear, whistled notes of the White-throated Sparrow are a characteristic summer sound over much of the Canadian country-side. Its distinctive song seems to many to say Sweet, Sweet, Canada, Canada, Canada and for that reason the bird is variously known as Canada Bird, Canada whitethroat, or Canadian song, sparrow. Many French Canadians call it siffleur or p'tit Frédéric although its proper French name is Pinson à gorge blanche, which like its English counterpart, refers to the bird's conspicuous white throat patch. Bushy openings in woodlands, thickets, young growth, bush-cluttered clearings, and burntlands are favoured by the White-throated Sparrow in summer. The nest, built by the female which incubates the 3 to 5 eggs, is usually placed on the ground, often under a shrub or in a clump of grass. In summer this sparrow is found in most wooded parts of Canada except western and southern parts of British Columbia.
