Just a little bit
of something else.
Prevost’s Ground Sparrow (Melozone biarcuatum)
Also known as the White-faced Ground Sparrow, Prevost’s ground sparrow is a species of American sparrow (Emberizidae) which breeds in middle altitude areas from southern Mexico to western Honduras and in Coasta Rica. Prevost’s ground sparrows typically inhabit the undergrowth and thickets of semi-open woodland, coffee plantations hedgerows, and large gardens. True to its common name M. biarcuatum feeds on the ground for seeds, berries, and insects/spiders.
The common name of Melozone biarcuatum was given in commemoration of the French naturalist Florent Prevost.

Sand Partridge (Ammoperdix heyi)
…a species of Old World partridge (Perdicinae) which occurs from Egypt and Israel east to the south Arabian Peninsula. In southeast Turkey and east to Pakistan A. heyi is replaced by its similar relative A. griseogularis (the see-see partridge). Sand partridges are resident breeders in dry, open and hilly countryside, where they will forage for a wide variety of seeds and plant matter. They are also occasionally know to take insects as well.
