Grasshopper Sparrow

All habitats have grasshoppers. Native grasslands have the most grasshopper species and they become food for all grassland birds. It is not surprising then that one bird species is name Grasshopper Sparrow. This species is an uncommon breeder on the Chico but they are found in the northeastern most Chico grasslands. All members of the Ammodramus genus are secretive but during the breeding season they can often be seen perched high on a grass stem singing. Grasshopper Sparrow has a weak whisper song that does not project far so birders need to listen carefully to hear one. But, they are often rewarded with a petite, subtly attractive sparrow.
