Field Sparrow (Spizella pusilla)

Posted on Jan 24, 2015

One of the more rare visitors to winter feeding stations, the Field Sparrow (Spizella pusilla) may turn up in your yard if you have a sizable and active bird community and put some seed on the ground. They will seek you out in a hurry if they are nearby and snow suddenly covers their fields and grasslands. Their bold white eye ring and such clean brown colors are very attractive.
