Okay, Big Bend again, last week. Now for my nemesis, the sparrows!

The first group I think I have ID'd correctly. The first 4 pics I think are Chipping Sparrows, 5th pic a Savannah Sparrow, and 6th a Vesper Sparrow.

The last seven I am not sure at all. Thanks

 

By the way, I was actually able to identify a lot of birds while there, contrary to all these posts;)

1-3. Chipping Sparrow

4-5. Brewer’s?

6. Vesper

7-9. Brewer’s?

10-11. Lincoln’s?

12. House

13. White-crowned

 

I am thinking Clay-colored for 8, and I would leave 7 and 9 Brewer's/ Clay-colored.

5 is Savannah Sparrows.

Oops, sorry, will do. Thanks

Just to be clear as it was not stated above, 11 is a House Finch, not a House Sparrow.

I'm having trouble with 7 due to the angle and light, but it is spizella, and far to plain for Clay-colored, so I guess I'll call it Brewer's. Otherwise, I agree with Kevin.

I was on a phone so it was hard to see.
