For me, it’s officially spring when Song Sparrows start singing! Song Sparrows are found throughout the United States and into Southern Canada. To bring them into your garden, plant thick, low vegetation, or create a brush pile. This sparrow is celebrated – and named – for its singing. Without its melodious song, this furtive bird could be overlooked, since it stays low, often hiding in brambles or piles of brush. You will be rewarded with a stunning song making your spring and summer days beautifully melodic. Hear more about this lovely little bird at BirdNote.
