BIR049-00124

A male and female Florida grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum floridanus) at White Oak Conservation Center, Yulee, Florida. The female has yellow, red blue split colors on her leg bands, while the male has green/blue leg bands. These adults were both hatched here last year.

These birds are part of a captive breeding program for this critically endangered bird, a few of which still live in the vanishing prairies of central Florida. There are nearly 100 adults, nestlings and hatch year birds here now at White Oak. This is likely more than are left in the wild now.
