I was perhaps even more afraid of drawing this bird as I was of the “Alameda” Song Sparrow. This “Bryant’s” Savannah Sparrow is endemic of the San Francisco Bay and Coastal Northern California, and differs visually only slight from inland populations within California. I’ve tried to represent the drab coloration and delicate streaks as accurately as I could. But perhaps the Savannah Sparrow’s structure itself was enough to take on. Slightly crested, short tailed and more compact than it’s salt marsh neighbor the “Alameda” Song Sparrow, it is the only member of it’s genus (Passerculus) and therefore worth a closer look.
