"Brewer's Sparrow"
Brewer's Sparrow:    The Brewer's Sparrow was named after the 19th century American naturalist Thomas Mayo Brewer, joint author with Baird and Ridgway (in 1874), of "A History of North American Birds", the first attempt of an anthology since Audubon some 30 years earlier.

Ehrlich, Dobkin, and Wheye, in their 1988 publication "The Birder's Handbook", write "Sparrow is based on the Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'flutterer'."
