Among the finches one of the most musical and plaintive songs is that of the bush-sparrow -- I do not know why the books call it field-sparrow, for it does not dwell in the open fields like the vesperfinch, the savannah-sparrow, and grasshopper-sparrow, but among the cedars and bayberry bushes and young locusts in the same places where the prairie warbler is found.
An hour later, some notes, few and simple, yet delicious and perfect, from the bush-sparrow -- towards noon the reedy trill of the robin.
