With streaking on its head and cheeks and a faint marking on its chest, the Lark Sparrow is a striking bird for a sparrow.

    • This is a nice recording of the Lark Sparrow's song and the song of a Cassin's Sparrow. I heard both of these birds next to the parking lot over the fence. For some reason, the only place I hear the Cassin's sparrow is in this specific location at Medina River Natural Area.
