Song Sparrow

Song Sparrows are common in OIympia. Here in the Pacific Northwest, Song Sparrows are much darker than eastern birds. These sparrows vary greatly across their wide range across North America, from northern Mexico to central Canada. Ornithologists recognize 24 races and have, at one time or another, named twice that many. Generally Song Sparrows are darker in regions with high humidity and larger in northern areas (Arcese et al. 2002).
