Lark Sparrow

I have previously blogged several times about Lark Sparrows, including last May. Erika and I found them to be common in July at Blue Mounds State Park in southwestern Minnesota. The bird in the second photo is preening, an important feather maintenance and cleaning behavior among most birds. Oddly, Martin and Parrish (2000), in their account in Birds of North America, write that “no information is available” about Lark Sparrow self-maintenance behavior.
