These sparrows live in the grasslands and prairies, throughout the mid section of North America. They breed across Western Canada and the Northern U.S., winter in Mexico, and migrate across the central U.S. And yes, they visit Saskatchewan every summer, and hang out in spring in my Regina backyard.
