There was a Brewers Sparrow singing constantly this morning on Belts
Road.  Go about 5 miles south of Brownsville on Gap Road and turn right
on Belts Road.  This is a gravel road.  Go about ¼ mile and the bird was
in the field north of the road.  It was not singing the long song but
was singing a shorter song with an introductory buzz followed by 4-5
staccato-like notes.  Best to get a look because there are Grasshopper,
Savannah, and Vesper Sparrows also in the field.
