A Field Sparrow announcing the new day was the first bird song Aldo Leopold awoke to on his farm in the 1940s.

In his Sand County Almanac, a classic of conservation and nature writing, Leopold brought to life scenes of nature, a month at a time.

Leopold used to sit on a bench outside his cabin door, awaiting the dawn chorus of Field Sparrows, American Robins and Baltimore Orioles.
