Song Sparrow's Nest, 4" (10.16 cm) wide by 4" (10.16 cm) tall.The Song Sparrow is a member of the native Sparrow family along with the Chipping Sparrow and is thought to be our most widespread native species. Known for its melodious vocalizations, the Song Sparrow is tolerant of human presence. These birds eat insects, some weed and grass seeds, and berries. The adult females build nests in spring and summer. Some build their nests on the ground, while others build them in bushes or trees. These birds are known to migrate at night.

We received these birds after their nest was disturbed. They were rehabilitated and finally released back into the wild.
