White-crowned Sparrows

Winter residents in the southern two-thirds of the United States, white-crowned sparrows are easy to spot with distinct black and white stripes on the heads of the males.
Here’s a male demonstrating “double-scratch” foraging  as described by John P. Dunning in The Sibley Guide to Bird Life & Behavior 2001 edition (page 524).
They’re spotted on the headlands of Point Dume State Beach
