Savannah Sparrow.

I’d seen a couple Savannah Sparrows in the past few days, but I had’t yet heard one sing until this morning. Several little singers, posted at various locations around the summit fields, singing their sweet soothing song with the little hiccup at the end.

I love Savannah Sparrows.
