Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum)
Funny but true story: Al and I went for a quick walk on the Agua Caliente trail to see if we could find anything exciting. We didn't see a single bird! On our way back down the hill I heard the "buzzy" sound and was able to find this cute little guy singing his song on this thistle plant. He was the only bird we saw on the trail. Wow, what a "lucky" day! Moral of the story--it's not over until you put the camera in the trunk.
