Photo 18Oct2009 at Gilbert Water Ranch, Gilbert, Az. I concluded Fox Sparrow. Looking for confirmation.

Yes, Fox Sparrow. Looks good for the red subspecies group with those rusty auriculars.

Absolutely! I would report this on eBird as there's only a handful of reports of (Red) Fox Sparrows in Maricopa County.

Benjamin, I am going through all of my photos at Gilbert Water Ranch beginning in 2007 and my observations lists (two years 2012-14) and posting them on Ebird. I am using Whatbird (the great and generous feedback) to check my ID's so I minimize Ebird reviewer's efforts and feedback. In the process I am learning much about ID'n the birds. I began walking GWR in about 2004 for cardio exercise. I go the camera in 2007. I met many high-powered-birder. Finally about 6 weeks ago after much encouragement from others I began posting on Ebird. I like the citizen-scientist contribution, and I have developed a good feeling with the contributions. I have made 'only observations' and 'first observations' so when I found the Fox Sparrow observation I was pleased. I also appreciated the support from Whatbird to not make me feel inferior and out-of-place seeking help. Thanks to you and the others in the community assisting me. I have many observations to examine.
