The White-throated Sparrow, Zonotrichia albicollis, is one of our common winter residents. We enjoy its plaintive song and independent attitude; so we are quite happy to hear the first arrivals of early fall and sadly acknowledge that they have all gone in the late spring. Since these little birds inhabit our backyards, it is interesting and easy to include them in our birdbanding programs, so that we may learn more about them. This paper is a report of the results from banding White-throated Sparrows at a banding station at Auburn, Alabama, from December, 1950, to the present season (Fall, 1954 to Spring, 1955).
