TIK-ZEEE OR TIK-TIK-ZEEE SOUNDING BIRD
This is a small four-inch dark greenish-tinged bird with a short tail commonly found on lawns searching out seeds. The female is lighter all over.
The song is a buzzing tik-zeee or tik-tik-zeee. A globular nest with a side entrance is built near the ground, in which three spotted eggs are laid.
