I have only seen Henslow’s Sparrow one time, only briefly for about 2 minutes. At the time I only knew it was a sparrow. It is identified by the striped olive colored flat head in conjunction with the reddish wings. It has a pale bill, finely striped breast, and a short tail. It has a range from the Midwest to the eastern states and from the northern states to the gulf coast. It has a habitat in weedy fields, where I found it.
