White-crowned sparrow.

White crowned sparrow, Oct 7, 2018, Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada.
We still have a few white crowned and white throated sparrows coming to the pond.

The white isn't as brilliant as it is in the spring, but it still stands out.

Zonotrichia leucophrys
A migrating White-crowned Sparrow was once tracked moving 300 miles in a single night. Alaskan White-crowned Sparrows migrate about 2,600 miles to winter in Southern California.
The oldest recorded White-crowned Sparrow lived in California and was at least 13 years, 4 months old.
