Weekly Sparrow Spotlight


The Lark Sparrow is one of the only sparrows seen around Brooklyn that is unlikely to be mistaken for anything else. It’s large size and bold head pattern is distinctive. This sparrow breeds, primarily, west of the Mississippi, however during the Fall migration they are a rare migrant along the east coast. One of my favorites, I’ve seen this beautiful sparrow in Brooklyn a handful of times in the past 25 years. Three of those times in Green-Wood Cemetery.
