Lark Sparrow

I have seen a Lark Sparrow at a distance several times, but one came to my yard for a few-minutes stay this morning. (Photo is courtesy of credit: The beautiful (quail-like) markings on its head, and its slightly bigger size, distinguish it from the House Sparrows here.

Lark Sparrows breed in Texas in the summertime. I have a variety of food and there is water. I didn't see this bird eat anything but I don't know how long it was here before I saw it. It eats seeds and insects. I hope it will visit again.
