Help IDing BirdCall is Chew Chew CHEE Chew
Posted 11 July 2012 - 02:18 AM
Live in Western Iowa, have never seen or heard this bird before. Is brownish, maybe olive/brown on back - has Yellow Chest, whiteish belly, black bib.
Size is about sparrow or slightly larger. Beak is short and stout, like cardinal. Wide open when he calls.
Call is distinct "Chew chew CHEE chew" , comes closer when I whistle his call. Calls from high wires along hwy or from tall weeds in pasture. have only seen this one bird and never before this year!

The sludge caught in the mind's filter, the stuff that refuses to go through, frequently becomes each person's private obsession. In civilized society we have an unspoken agreement to call our obsessions "hobbies". - Stephen King
