American Tree Sparrow

Spizella arborea
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passeriformes
Family: Emberizidae

The Emberizidae are a large family of passerine birds.

They are seed-eating birds with a distinctively shaped bill. In Europe, most species are named as buntings.

In North America, most of the species in this family are known as Sparrows, but these birds are not closely related to the Old World sparrows which are in the family Passeridae. The family also includes the North American birds known as juncos and towhees

Their habits are similar to those of finches, with which they sometimes used to be grouped. Older sources may place some emberizids in the Fringillidae, and the common names of some emberizids still refer to them as finches.

Many species have distinctive head patterns.

The following list gives the groups of Emberizids. A full species list is given for those groups which do not yet have their own articles, to be moved at the appropriate time. still working on this
