September 18, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, City Hall

I am known as a Lark Sparrow
You know I'm not a house sparrow cause my markings are different -
I have a chestnut cheek patch and a black spot on my breast
I'm different, but still quite magnificent.

But I am not native to Florida, I am
The only Lark sparrow here, but I'm not alone
I hang with House Sparrows, but we can't inter breed,
I am destined to live my life in the "friend" zone.
