LeConte's Sparrow

Laura’s favorite sparrow breeds in the wet pastureland along Highway 13 in Bayfield County, and Laura spent many happy hours watching and listening to it when her mother-in-law lived there. This is one of her favorite of all birds for many reasons. It thrives in wet fields within its range where grass isn’t mowed until late summer.
