Steve’s Bird Of The Day #27.

Welcome back to our bird of the day! Today we have a “song sparrow”, a medium sized sparrow and one of the most common in N. America. There have been 24 subspecies of this sparrow identified across N. A. The ones in the north are darker and more heavily streaked underneath. They are not one of the most beautiful of sparrows, but they make up for that with a beautiful song. It is one of my favorite bird songs actually. These are usually the first sparrow to come back in spring, normally in early to mid April. It is so nice to go out early one morning and hear them singing for the first time in spring. That truly means that winter is past. They enjoy a variety of habitats, from backyard gardens to roadsides and especially along the shores of marshes, lakes and rivers. It’s definitely one of my favorite summer birds. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Yes, that’s something we miss in winter. Even though we can have a lot of birds around they don’t generally sing in winter. Thanks Beverly!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ“·
