Le Conte's Sparrow

Ammodramus leconteii


Bright orange eyebrow and Buffy breast with streaks along sides, purplish chestnut streaks on nape, white median crown stripe, strong stripes on back.


Spotted at Tamarac NWR, both male and female came to a bird feeder. They can be found in grassy marshes, ntallgrass field, weedy hayfields.


The LeConte Sparrow breeds in western North Dakota, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, and upper peninsula of Michigan, but the heart of its range and bulk of population is in the prairie provinces of Canada. There is also a breeding population in northeastern Montana. Migrants move south between mid-September and early November.
