BIRD OF THE WEEK — GRASSHOPPER SPARROW — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH NEWSLETTER blog has a better viewing experience please subscribe.  

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,000 members and over 67,000 photos and videos. 

BIRD OF THE WEEK

GRASSHOPPER SPARROW

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Ammodramus savannarum
POPULATION: 31 million
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Breeds and winters in grasslands, including prairies, pastures, meadows, and old fields.

More often heard than seen, the secretive Grasshopper Sparrow gets its name for the buzzing, insect-like quality of its songs. When seen among the dense grasses where it breeds, this small, short-tailed bird appears big-headed and large-billed compared to other sparrows.

Habitat loss and degradation remain the greatest threats to Grasshopper Sparrow and other grassland-dependent species such as Baird’s Sparrow, Long-billed Curlew, and Bobolink. Increased use of pesticides, brood parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbirds, and loss of wintering habitat have also contributed to population declines.
