Friday's Foto

Lincoln's Sparrow - Dell Water, Green-Wood Cemetery
This dainty sparrow with delicately marked breast streaks is the Lincoln's Sparrow. Somewhat similar to the Song and Swamp Sparrows, it can be separated by a brown crown with gray central stripe, thick malar mark bordered by white throat, buff submustachial stripe and white belly. A skulker, they are not so much rare on migration in Brooklyn, as just hard to see. Breeding in sub-alpine and montane zones across Alaska, Canada, and northeastern and western United States, they overwinter from the southern United States to Mexico and northern Central America.
