Amphispiza (desert sparrows)

Wikipedia Abstract

Amphispiza is a genus of birds in the bunting and American sparrow family. It contains two species: \n* Five-striped sparrow Amphispiza quinquestriata \n* Black-throated sparrow, Amphispiza bilineata It has long been considered to contain the sage sparrow complex as well, but mitochondrial DNA sequences suggest that the sage sparrow (in the broad sense) is not very closely related to the five-striped and black-throated sparrows, so it has been placed in its own genus, Artemisiospiza, a treatment followed here.
