# 1 -- probably a Song Sparrow; photographed at the Northgate Entrance to Merwin Nature Preserve. He was hard to spot among the grass and leaves. The cloudy day didn't provide much light for contrast. His beak looks black to me, which confused me when I was trying to identify it, but it is probably just the way it looks to the camera in the poor lighting.
# 2 -- I'm confident now that this one is a Song Sparrow; photographed at Cooper's Park in East Peoria. This little bird was singing up a storm.
# 3 -- possibly an American Tree Sparrow; photographed at Cooper's Park in East Peoria. He was busy looking for food under the leaves in the woods near the beaver pond.
