    Comments: Chunky looking passerine with similar jizz to a female House Sparrow, but much more brightly colored with characteristic yellow on the breast and facial areas, and bright rufous patch on the 'shoulders' or lesser coverts. Seen well at close range for a good ten minutes but very skulking, remaining well hidden with Song and Swamp Sparrows for most of the time. Called several times, a single, abrupt raspy note - quite unique to Dickcissel.
