Black and white sparrow in Orange County, California

Recommended Posts

I saw a group of these sparrows at Fullerton Arboretum in OC today. I assume a sparrow anyway given the thick bill and overall body shape. Black body with a white nape, white on the wings, and an orange bill. It was interested in eating grass seedheads on the lawn near the stream. For some reason it looks familiar to me but I could not find a match in the local birds guides.
