Le Conte's Sparrow

This was a rare visitor at Rondeau two years ago.

I like the appearance of the water in the background.

It is mainly a western bird seen on the prairies and boggy fields.

It caused quite a stir and was a one day wonder.

It has a bright orange eyebrow and a buffy breast, a white median crown stripe and strong stripes on the back.

Ammodramus leconteii
