While nesting Worthen's sparrows appear to be rather thinly dispersed, birds in the non-breeding season have been observed congregating into single-species flocks of up to 70 individuals, occasionally in the company of other bird species (4). Nests of three to four eggs have been found from May to July (2), with nesting males observed performing territorial songs (4).
