Field Sparrow

The field sparrow is distributed across eastern Canada and the eastern United States, with northern populations migrating southwards to southern United States and Mexico in the fall. The typical habitat of this bird is bushy country with shrubs and grassland. The nest is a cup-shaped construction built on the ground and hidden beneath a bush or clump of grass. The birds forage on the ground or in low vegetation, feeding mainly on seeds and insects.

Their breeding habitat is wet thickets or shrubby bogs across Canada, Alaska, and the northeastern and western United States; this bird is less common in the eastern parts of its range. The nest is a well-concealed shallow open cup on the ground under vegetation.
These birds migrate to the southern United States, Mexico, and northern Central America; they are passage migrants over much of the United States, except in the west.They forage on the ground in dense vegetation, mainly eating insects and seeds.

  1. Sparrows are so tough for me to name. I love my Fox Sparrow they are gorgeous but Filed, European and Song ones are the difficult ones for me. With all my Blue Birds of late I worry about the non native one but must let nature play out in the forest if I set up the 3 boxes I bought for them it would constantly be a fight for me to be an evictor I just chose to enjoy all my visitors. Love your blog.

  2. Ah, the little brown jobs! Thank you for the pictures and information! Can’t say I’ve seen too many Field Sparrows and the only Lincoln Sparrow I’ve seen is in Central Park NYC.
