Primarily found east of the Rocky Mountains, the white-throated sparrow has long been studied by ornithologists and enjoyed by hobbyists. During their migration these birds are frequently found at feeders eating seeds (particularly millet and sunflower varieties) and fruits (elderberries, cherries and strawberries to name a few).
If you keep a brush pile in your yard or low growing shrubbery, they love to hide out and grab bits of seed and fruits that have fallen from the feeder.
