May 4: Missouri Sparrows with Brad Jacobs
Sparrows are regularly some of the most difficult birds for birders to distinguish between. Sparrow species are often reduced to LBB (little brown bird) or simply “some sparrow” status.  As Alfred North Whitehead said, “we think in generalities, but we live in detail.” Learn the right details to focus on the next time you see a sparrow to help you identify the species and create a larger appreciation for the intricacies found within birds and nature.
