NYC, 11/8/18.  Bird was in total shade.  Is the pinkish color, which is just as I saw it, normal for Swamp Sparrows? 

Thanks, Kami

Good to know, thanks.  I saw several Swamp Sparrows at different times in October.  None of them had this coloring.

Color in some cases depends on the individual bird. Swamp Sparrows have a lot of variation in my experience- bright birds, more dull birds and some inbetween.
