Savannah Sparrow

Back home in Elkton today, I took a morning bird walk with Buster out Mehl Creek Road.  The open fields there gave up a number of good birds to count, among them this SavannahSparrow.  The yellow eyebrow is the key identifier.  It looks rather slim for a sparrow but my thinking is it’s probably a female you has worked her-self down to skin and bones feeding her young.  Notice the bug in her mouth as further evidence to my thinking. Remember, you can click on the image for a larger view.
