The White-crowned Sparrow can be found in Douglas County during the breeding season (April to July) and in the winter months (November to March). The species is a common resident in the region's open woodlands, shrubby areas, and suburban gardens. During the breeding season, it can be found in higher elevation habitats such as coniferous forests, while in the winter months, it is often seen in lower elevation habitats such as oak woodlands and grassy fields. White-crowned Sparrows primarily feed on seeds and insects, including grasses, weeds, and berries, and they often forage on the ground or in low vegetation.
