[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Song Sparrow, Melospiza melodia, is a medium-sized American sparrow.

The male of this species uses its melodious and fairly complex song to declare ownership of its territory and to attract females.

The song sparrow's song consists of a combination of repeated notes, quickly passing isolated notes, and trills. The songs are very crisp, clear, and precise, making them easily distinguishable by human ears. A particular song is determined not only by pitch and rhythm but also by the timbre of the trills. Although one bird will know many songs - as many as 20 different tunes with as many as 1,000 improvised variations on the basic theme, unlike thrushes, the song sparrow usually repeats the same song many times before switching to a different song.
