Olive Sparrow - Arremonops rufivirgatus

Photo: Kyle Blaney; 2013 Apr 18; USA, Texas; Brownsville; Adult;
Song: Song a somewhat musical series of accelerating "tsip" or "chip" notes: "ssit ssit ssi chu-chu-chuchuchuchu-chu". Song is reminiscent of Northern Cardinal's but much weaker, flatter and with an overall less melodious quality. Calls include a thin "tsik" often rapidly repeated and a lisping "ssssiu".
