Lark Bunting (Calamospiza melancorys) - 01Dec2015

Here is another one of those pics I hope to replace soon, namely with a male bird in breeding plumage.  Male Lark Buntings are really snazzy.

Per the Cornell website:

"A common sparrow of the Great Plains, the male Lark Bunting is distinctive with its black body and white wings. It is the only sparrow that changes completely out of a bright breeding plumage into a drab winter one."

This one was seen at a sod farm somewhere between Phoenix and Tucson, AZ.
