Henslow’s sparrows are migratory and are generally only found in the Big Thicket during the winter months. They fly north during the warmer months to lay their eggs. Like many birds, they are omnivorous, but live primarily on insects and seeds. During the warmer months they tend to eat more insects but will consume more seeds in winter as insects become less available. They tend to forage alone.
