The common passerine bunting (Spizella passerina) is a species of small passerine birds from the family Passerellidae.

An adult bird has a crest on the crown of the head, the lower part of the body is gray, and the beak is dark. Brown back with dark stripes, brown wings with white stripes, thin tail. The face is gray with a horizontal black stripe running through the eye.


Common Passerine Bunting is found throughout North America. Initially, its habitat was probably coniferous forests, but thanks to the ability to adapt to changes associated with human activities, the bird discovered new habitats for itself. Today she lives in forests, farmland, parks and suburbs in North America. In winter, the bird migrates to Mexico and the southern states of the United States.


The bird searches for food on the ground or in undersized bush. Sometimes they catch insects in flight. The main food source is insects and seeds. Outside the nesting period, birds live in flocks. Their singing is simple trills. Birds build their nests, as a rule, in the crown of coniferous or deciduous trees, sometimes also on the ground.
