These are Song Sparrows found in the salt marshes around the south bay. These sparrows have adapted to drinking salt water. They are called the Alameda Song Sparrow, or Melospiza Melodia Pusillula. All of the sparrows in this gallery were photographed in the marsh area, but not all of them are pusillulas, as there is some overlap with the upland subspecies, gouldii.
