Birds of Quivira – The Sparrows

Lark Sparrow

The sparrows were not to be outdone by other groups of birds.  Steve and I were fortunate to find a number of interesting sparrows.  Unfortunately most were difficult and uncooperative, at least when light was good.  The Lark Sparrows, although gorgeous, were giving us a little confusion with their unfamiliar song.

While moving through the woodlots of Quivira, we found a couple of sneaky, tricksy Lincoln’s Sparrows.

My first time hearing the song of Clay-colored Sparrow.  Their insect-like trills were somehow quite appealing and I looked forward to hearing them in the mornings.

Finally, the Savannah Sparrow, which can be found in different forms across the continent.
