Two Little Unknowns

Recommended Posts

Chipping Sparrows around me have a distinct black eye line and a large rufous cap. The black line on this bird is above the eye, not through it.   May have a cap, hard to tell.

The second bird is indeed a Chipping Sparrow. The head's tilted -- what appears like it could be an eye is some ruffled feathers at the bottom of the auriculars. The dark line goes through the eye, with the white supercilium just above that. The rufous crown is hidden by the way the head is tilted.
