Olive Sparrow

Arremonops rufivirgatus

The Olive Sparrow’s preferred habitat is dense thorny scrublands. They range from southern Texas to Central America and are non-migratory. Their songs are reminiscent of the bouncing ball song of the Black-Chinned Sparrow, and their appearance is similar to a Green-Tailed Towhee. Most of their time is spent on or near the ground, both when foraging for seeds and the occasional insect, and when nesting.
