Little passerine in Galveston Island prairie

Recommended Posts

Small flocks of these sparrow-sized birds live in patches of prairie on the Galveston Island, TX. Photographed November 25. Please, help to identify. Thanks.

That's a Savannah Sparrow. Note the small pink bill, short tail, tan cheeks, crisply streaked underparts, and yellowish stripe above the eye.
