Scientific name: Passerculus sandwichensis
The savannah sparrow is a small American sparrow. The common name comes from Savannah, Georgia, where one of the first specimens of this bird was collected.
These birds forage on the ground or in low bushes; particularly in winter they are also found in grazed low-growth grassland. They mainly eat seeds, but also eat insects in the breeding season. They are typically encountered as pairs or family groups in the breeding season, and assemble in flocks for the winter migration.
