Sparrow: Okanagan, BC

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This was taken on Dec 9 in the south side of Swan Lake area, Okanagan, BC & in a marshy area. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Maybe you’re right...not seeing cheek patches though. I do see long dark eye line, and malar stripe. No wing bars. Hmmm... 🤔

I don't see anything that points to American Tree Sparrow here.  I see a bright white throat/malar bordering the cheek which is about the same color as the back.  I agree that it has a Savannah Sparrow look to it, but I suppose it could also be a Song Sparrow which appears to be more likely than a Savannah at this time of year.  Do you have any more photos?
