Baird’s Sparrow (Ammodramus bairdii) is a small (12 cm), elusive bird that breeds in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, Canada and Montana, North and South Dakota and possibly Minnesota and Wyoming. It winters in arid grasslands in the western U.S., and is observed in New Mexico exclusively as a wintering species. It usually stays low in the grass and is primarily detected by its song.
