Hi,

 

Saw this bird out in the yard today that I’m not recognizing as one I’ve seen before.  My first thought was perhaps a female House Sparrow, but the pale stripe above the eye doesn’t seem to be a match.  Also thought perhaps Chipping Sparrow, owing to the redish crown, but that doesn’t look quite right either.  Can anyone help me out?  Thanks!

Chipping Sparrow (dark eyeline and lores, reddish cap, pink bill) in nonbreeding plumage, I believe.

 

OK, looks like one of my guesses would've been correct.  Thanks, everyone!

Haha.  Trick photography.  I think mine was either on an evergreen branch directly behind the birdbath, or in the act of jumping down.

Birds can be good for entertainment value, that's for sure!  👍

Hey Kevin, can you fix your Texas coast album?  I'm kindof interested as I'm considering a future trip, but Google says the link is broken.  🙁

I did not know it was not working. I will see what I can do.

I added two new links. Please let me know if either or both work.
