Range. - Pacific coast from Mexico to Alaska, breeding chiefly north of our borders.
This species has the crown yellow, bordered by black on the sides. Their habits are like those of the White-crowned Sparrows, they feeding upon the ground among the dead leaves, and usually being found in flocks and often accompanied by many of the last species. They nest upon the ground-or in low bushes, and in May or June lay three or four eggs very similar to the last. Size .90 x .65.
