  1. Observed a few days ago in Chicago, Illinois in the middle of the city among a group of house sparrows.

    Pictures are a little blurry. Slightly more upright than house sparrows; hopping on the grass. A light brown streak visible above and below the eye. Black spots on the upper chest. I thought it could be a harris sparrow, but not sure. I don't see black on top of the head. Not familiar with midwest birds, so any input would be appreciated!

    Any chance you could crop the photos a bit closer? Might provide some more details as this site compresses photos once uploaded 

    A cropped photo is attached, as requested. It is hard to tell the true color of the head with this angle of lighting. I increased the exposure, and now am seeing green in addition to the white stripe on the wing. I appreciate all the insights!
