A Cassin’s Sparrow
it’s rare in my area
Prefers dry grasslandsThis is a very rare bird for my area. It was seen and photographed a few days ago so, of course, I had to go out and see if I could see it and maybe get a few photos. The photos aren’t that great, but it was mid-day and the lighting was not very good. I waited 2.5 hours before I could see it and get some photos. It is a ground feeder so was hanging out in high grass and not visible until it hopped up on a fence with a grasshopper in its bill.
