This Song Sparrow spent Tuesday morning sitting above a lake near the 9th hole of the Oak Hills Country Club in DeWitt. According to allaboutbirds.org, the Song Sparrow spends its winter months in Arkansas.
A rare bird to Arkansas has been spotted in Arkansas County. I met up with a fellow birder late this morning to go see the female Vermilion Flycatcher. The flycatcher is presently living on the 18th hole (which doubles as the 9th hole) at the Oak Hill Country Club in DeWitt.
Luckily, we found it although we weren’t too sure of ourselves at the time. Unfortunately, the pictures are kind of out-of-focused. Still here’s two more shots of the bird.
