A rich, russet and gray bird with bold streaks down its white chest, the Song Sparrow is one of the most common birds in the Sanctuary.  You are likely to see the Song Sparrow on the outer edges of the Sanctuary and along the Meadow and Heron Overlook paths.  They tend to flit through low vegetation in open areas with an occasional trip to the ground in search of various seeds, grain and insects.  You might also see them perched on low shrubs, leaning back and singing a clattering song.
