Lark Sparrow

Lark Sparrows, like this one Gerry Hoekstra and I found at the Louisville Swamp Unit of the Minnesota River Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Scott County, often favor recently burned fields. Such was the case with this bird, found last Thursday in a recently burned prairie. Lark Sparrows also are partial to shrubby or heavily grazed pastureland. I have previously written about this species’ breeding behavior.

  1. I love the head-on shot. I never would have realized that the Black markings make circle like that.
