But this LBB is one that I can actually locate based on hearing its call as I drive by: The Clay-colored Sparrow.
It's sharp, buzzy call is, to me, highly distinctive and seems to carry quite far. Have a listen.
Clay-colored Sparrows are somewhat unique in that they're a mid-continent bird. Found on their breeding territory in open grasslands throughout the northern regions of central North America , they follow almost a due south migration path that funnels to Texas and Mexico. Here's a great distribution map.
Right now they're dotting the fence posts and clinging to barbed wire along a stretch of roadway I drive daily.
I have to admit that when I'm driving past the wild grassland fields by my house and hear their "bzzzzt" calls I gleefully think to myself "aha! I know that bird call." (simple pleasures, people... simple pleasures...) ;-)
