"Harris's Sparrow"
Harris's Sparrow:    The Harris's Sparrow was first collected in Missouri in 1834 by Thomas Nuttall and later named by John James Audubon for American naturalist Edward Harris, a friend and companion of Audubonís on his 1843 trip up the Missouri River. The Harris's Hawk was also named by Audubon after Edward Harris.

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