Small, short-tailed sparrow with a yellow patch in front of the eye. Found in grassy edges of rivers, as well as in grassy patches in urban and agricultural areas. Hops and scurries along the ground between patches of grass. Similar to Grassland Sparrow, but Yellow-browed Sparrow is lighter tan with more yellow in the face. Listen for its high, buzzy song, “tic tic ZEEEE tic ZEEEE,” often sung from an exposed perch.
