Media notes

Singing and territorial Savannah Sparrow at Ocean Beach County Park, Santa Ynez River Estuary, Santa Barbara County, California. The birds here are closest to P. s. alaudinus (formerly bryanti), the subspecies breeding north of here.

Observation details

Singing and territorial, sometimes in disputes with Song Sparrow here. These are clearly not as dark as Belding's and appear more similar to the birds at the mouth of the Santa Maria River and north into San Luis Obispo County (P. s. alaudinus, formerly named bryanti). Photos
