The Song Sparrow almost certainly gets its name because, well… it sings, and sings, and then sings some more! And it’s a beautiful song for sure. A common prairie bird, it can be easily overlooked because it isn’t particularly flashy, looking a lot like every other sparrow out there. Not until you really watch and listen to this bird does its true beauty shine. The song has a soothing, hypnotic effect that draws you in and washes away the weight of the world until it’s just you and this bird and nature.
