Lincoln's Sparrow

Melospiza lincolnii

Habitat:

Small desert pond

Notes:

This unique sparrow was observed well as it perched on a twig as a reaction to my pishing. I've been having more luck lately in getting birds to respond to my imitations of alarm calls. I heard this sparrow's sharp "bzzzt" call a few times before catching a glimpse of it.
