Lincoln's sparrow        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Lincoln's sparrows are small, neatly-colored birds that breed in the north and winter in the southern US.   They look somewhat like song sparrows, but have neat, thin lines on a buffy breast (not the dark spot of the song sparrow) and a large gray 'eyebrow'.   The bird below at left was feeding on berries near Homer, Alaska; the others were in Potter Marsh near Anchorage, Alaska and in Madera Canyon and Patagonia in southeastern Arizona.
