Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large-headed and thick-billed sparrow, found exclusively in weedy grasslands with sparse shrubs. Singing males perch conspicuously in the breeding season; otherwise secretive, especially in migration and winter. Distinctive color combination of olive-green nape, rufous wings, and crisp black streaks below. Populations declining sharply for unknown reasons. Listen for its short insect-like song, "ts-lick."
