There are a few weeks every autumn when white-throated sparrows appear to be everywhere. I see them in my garden every morning before heading out for walks. White-throats spend the breeding season all over Canada though usually not much farther south than cottage country in Ontario. In winter they migrate to the eastern and southern United States.
White-throated Sparrows eat mainly the seeds of grasses and weeds, including ragweed and buckwheat, as well as fruits of sumac, grape, cranberry, mountain ash, rose, blueberry, blackberry, and dogwood. In summer, they eat large numbers of insects. (allaboutbirds.com)
In about ten minutes, I was able to photograph 14 individuals this morning.

When breezes are soft and skies are fair,
I steal an hour from study and care,
And hie me away to the woodland scene,
Where wanders the stream with the waters of green. William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
