"Savannah Sparrow"
Savannah Sparrow:    The Savannah Sparrow is named after Savannah, Georgia, where one of the first specimens of the bird was found.

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