Here is the songbird whose melodious song is the most appreciated by Canadians staying in the hinterland: the White-throated Sparrow. Male and female are identical, but the plumage may vary from one bird to another. This painting by Gisèle presents a pair in a springtime setting typical of their habitat. Willow Catkins attract pollinating insects which several species of birds feast on. The White-throated Sparrow diet includes seeds, insects and wild berries.
