Baird's Sparrow?


Recommended Posts

Location is grasslands near Fort Peck in Montana.  Charles MN. Russell National Wildlife Refuge in an area with open grassland with thin-bladed, medium height grasses without much scrub.  I like the head and neck fine-streaks, crown stripe, facial markings EXCEPT I'm not seeing a dark lateral throat-stripe.  Breast streaking seems to match many photos I've reviewed.  General size and color seems good.  Beak is relatively big and heavy compared to other possible sparrows.  Merlin IDs it as a Baird's.
