Swamp sparrow

As their name suggests, swamp sparrows are often found perched in low vegetation in swampy areas. They breed primarily in Canada and visit Marion County during cooler months. This one was photographed at the Ocala Wetland Recharge Park, where they can often be found foraging among the cattails.
