The Lincoln's Sparrow is a shy bird, and most times it is a challenge to observe it. It is very similar to the Song Sparrow in appearance, but once one has seen a few of them, it becomes easier to distinguish between them. It gives a sharp chirp when it is alarmed or when it is defending its territory. It is seen mostly around marshes and meadows. These sparrows have been reported seen in Cuba.
