Which Sparrow?


Recommended Posts

Taken yesterday in Southern California,

I thought Clay-colored, Chipping, or White-crowned.  After looking at it closer I believe it is a White-crowned based no the color of the bill.

Different bird, same area.

Again, the second bird is not a juvenile.  Juveniles are heavily streaked and you wouldn't see them at this time of the year.  It is an immature (first winter) White-crowned.

There is really no need to reply to threads that have already been solved and answered by two or more people, unless you have extra useful or interesting information to add.  Doing this just brings old threads to the top and pushes newer threads off of the first page.
