Sagebrush Sparrow

Artemisiospiza nevadensis

The Sage Sparrow is now considered by scientists as two species. One, the Bell’s Sparrow, is resident in southern and coastal California, and the other, the Sagebrush Sparrow, breeds between the Rockies on the east and the Sierra and Cascade ranges on the west, while wintering in Arizona, New Mexico, west Texas and Mexico.
