Common Reed Bunting
Readily sexed using the below criteria (very rarely, odd birds may cause some temporary confusion).
Male, 2cy, May. Easily reckognized as male on the striking black and white head pattern. In more fresh 2cy birds, much of the distinct pattern may be concealed by pale tips and fringes but, at least, irregular traces of black and white always breaks through. [1ET28087]
