In the top photo, the blurry dot is a Florida Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum floridanus) an endangered bird found only in the dry palmetto prairie of Central Florida. They can be found during summer mornings, when the males will take high perches around their territory to sing.
The sparrows require annual brush fires prior to nesting season to keep the brush low to the ground and relatively open. (shown in the second photo)
Loss of habitat is the major threat to the grasshopper sparrow as much of the sparrows former range has been converted to “improved pastures” to support more cattle per acre.
I have been trying to find one of these sparrows for the past year and on this visit only found one because I ran across a team of monitors who keep track of the status of the population.
