Brewer's sparrow?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, and belated happy new year --

I saw this little one at City of Rocks State Park between Deming and Silver City, New Mexico (southwestern part of the state) last weekend. Merlin says it's likely a Brewer's sparrow, but, as always with sparrows other than the house variety, I'd like some third-party confirmation. Thanks very much!

It's true Merlin is wrong some of the time, and isn't useful in complicated IDs of similar birds. But for beginning birders, it can still be a very useful tool.

It's good at showing options, but sometimes can also confuse a begginer.
