You all have probably heard about the latest changes to the AOU checklist, and that the Sage Sparrow has been split into 2 species – if you’re interested in (maybe!) learning a bit more, I’ve put up a blurb about what that means for us within Nevada. At the least, you’ll get to see a picture of some Bell’s Sparrow habitat in southern Nevada!

Happy birding, Jen
