Recommended Posts

eBird reviewer said it could be rare "Red" subspecies!

This looks fine for Sooty. There doesn't appear to be streaking on the back. Weak malar stripe and overall ruddy appearance, large bill, and bibbed appearance makes me think insularis Sooty Fox Sparrow

I don't think the face pattern is distinct enough for a Red Fox Sparrow.  Not that I know much about subspecies, but it just doesn't look like the ones we get here in the northeast.

My problem is there is no streaking on the back, and the auricular patch looks off. I could be wrong though.
