The only winter sparrows which I am regular seeing this winter are AMERICAN 
TREE, HARRIS'S and if you want to include DARK-EYED JUNCOS.

Hi:  There is also an absence of winter sparrows  in northwest Missouri this 
winter, even worse than last winter.  Great  sparrow habitat produces almost no 
birds.  All of the birders in this area  have noticed this.

Fellow Mo-Birders.
 
I am concerned about the absence of sparrows in the Ozarks this  winter. I do 
find small flocks of Junco but almost nothing else. As I  compare data to prior 
years what alarms me the most is sparrow hot spots like  White River Trace CA 
are almost absent of sparrows both in numbers and  species. I birded locations 
yesterday that have always been good sparrow habitat  and not one sparrow was 
located with the exception of a small flock of Junco and a single Towhee and I 
birded all day. I am  curious if this is an Ozark phenomena or are other birders 
noticing the  same thing.
