Three Species of Sparrows
Much like the White-throated and Fox Sparrows, the Song Sparrow may frequently be seen sitting high in a tree where at this time of the year, it fills its days with singing.
Surroundings are also helpful when identifying this bird. As the name implies, this species of sparrow is often found in areas of shallow water with plenty of low vegetation.
The more I see and listen to these birds, as well as study my pictures, I am gaining confidence in identifying them quickly. The other advantage to having that skill is to be able to recognize an uncommon sparrow by eliminating the regulars.
