[Savannah Sparrow song]
It’s an understated fowl — creamy coloured with brownish streaks. Nevertheless it’s not simply one other “little brown fowl.”  Look carefully and you may see its yellow eyebrow stripe. When you’re fortunate, chances are you’ll even see it increase its crown feathers. 
And make sure you pay attention for the Savannah Sparrow, in open, unmowed sections of metropolis parks. You would possibly mistake it for an insect.
