Field Sparrow

 
Field Sparrows are common in brushy fields, but tend to avoid urban and suburban habitats. Consequently, these sparrows have declined in numbers. This year I heard a Field Sparrow before I banded one—presumably the individual I heard. The song is an accelerating series of whistles that end in a trill. The species is common across the eastern United States and southern Canada.
