Savannah Sparrow 6/29/13

This bird is catching a breeze in the mid-day heat on one of the fences surrounding the runways at the Pease Tradeport. With their streaky breasts and central dark spot, Savannah Sparrows look much like a bleached out Song Sparrow. But note the yellow eyebrows which the darker Song Sparrows lack, and other sparrows with yellow eyebrows like the White-throated and Seaside Sparrows, don’t have the finely streaked breast.
