A medium-sized, bulky sparrow. They are very streaky and brown in appearance with thick streaks on a white chest and flanks. The head is a mix of reddish-brown and gray - although the shades and the amount of streaking vary extensively across North America with a wide variety of regional differences.
Spotted in a meadow at Boyd Audubon. This bird kept flying back and forth between the woods and the top of this birdhouse. It was always carrying something in it's beak.
