Rufous-crowned Sparrow

Rufous-crowned Sparrows of California are browner and lower contrast than populations in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Our west coast birds are resident in the chaparral slopes where they enjoy patches of earth and rock between the shrubs. They have a rushed-sounding song and an easy to learn contact call that makes them fairly easy to locate.
