My dog Gus and I went for a walk around the fields behind the house.

It was snowing pretty good during the entire walk and there was already a few inches on the ground.

    Comments: The heavy snowfall pushed 4 SAVS into a small patch of tall grass, in the middle of the cornfield. When my dog and I walked up, they jumped to the tops of the grass to look at us. Smaller and slimmer than SOSP with darker brown coloration overall, more thinly streaked breast, yellow cere, pointed pink bill.

    Comments: The heavy snowfall had many sparrows pushed into small areas, where tall grass and other vegetation was giving them some cover. They were easy to count this way and there were at least 70 SOSP total throughout the area I walked around.
