Lincoln's Sparrow (Melospiza lincolnii) These lovely sparrows just visit my area in the winter and they're super shy. This one has a little territory that it likes and occasionally it will come out of the tangle to pose for me.

Lincoln's sparrow is a medium-sized sparrow. They are very secretive. Their song is a musical trill, but this bird is often not seen or heard even where they are common. They forage on the ground in dense vegetation, mainly eating insects and seeds.
