Bachman's Sparrow

This bird, endemic to the southeastern United States, nests on the ground in open pine forests. Due to tragically declining habitat, its numbers are significantly lower than decades ago.

For people who demand that birds meet our aesthetic standards, Bachman’s Sparrow may be drab in plumage but more than makes up for it with its pretty song.
