Moreau River, Missouri - The Days of The Sparrows

I guess that my local patch is a spot by the Moreau River, in Central Missouri, outside Jefferson City, because that is where i go most often. This place has a large meadow, and quite a nice patch of forest along the river.
On Saturday and Sunday morning i had (among other birds) quite a selection of sparrows:
Savannah
Vesper
Song
White-throated
White-crowned
Chipping
Le Conte's
Clay-colored
Fox
and a Swamp sparrow.

It's raining now, unfortunately...
