Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plumage varies, but usually shows distinctive yellow patch in front of eye. Also note streaky breast and short tail, because not all individuals have yellow. Breeds in open areas including meadows and hayfields. Found in more open habitats than Song Sparrow; also smaller and shorter-tailed. Very rare at feeders.
