Northern Flicker Woodpecker, "Male"
The White-throated Sparrow counted in at 674 in this year's Central Park Christmas Bird Count. Although they look nothing alike and aren’t particularly closely related, the White-throated Sparrow and the Dark-eyed Junco occasionally mate and produce hybrids. The resulting offspring look like grayish, dully marked White-throated Sparrows with white outer tail feathers.
