The stripe-headed sparrow is an American sparrow which breeds from Pacific coastal south-western Mexico, including the transverse ranges, Cordillera Neovolcanica to Pacific coastal northern Costa Rica.

This common bird is found in lowlands up to 1,800 m in altitude in the north of its range, and 800 m in Costa Rica. Its habitat is brushy savannah, scrubby second growth and woodland edges, but it avoids the forest interior.

The nest, built by the female, is a deep cup of plant.. more
