Sparrows can be very difficult to identify. The best way to hone your sparrow IDing skills is get out in the field as much as you can, and read about the resident and migratory sparrows in your region. Did you know that dark-eyed juncos are sparrows?
Each year I set a goal for the different types of sparrows that I want to see. Last year I was able to check three off of my list of five. The Savannah sparrow was one of them. It was an unexpected and very welcome find!
