Henslow’s and Grasshopper Sparrows

The following videos were taken at Deer Run Forest Preserve in our home county, Winnebago, in northern Illinois. This preserve has many sparrow species – Henslow’s, Grasshopper, Savannah, Vesper, Field, Lark, Chipping, and Song, along with Dickcissels. The cicada invasion is finally winding down, so it is easier to hear the birds songs. The video quality isn’t that great but the sound picked up nicely. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks John and Monarch! We are hoping to upgrade video-cams sometime soon. If only Sony or some other company would feel compelled to donate a new one to us 🙂
