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.

Subject: Absence of sparrow in the Ozarks!

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.
