Only one I have seen to my knowledge. Taken here in Calif. in 2015 and IDed as a Chipping Sparrow on the ID forum on Whatbird. Please correct me if this was a wrong ID. I'm not familiar enough with them to know for sure by my own ID.

That looks like an immature White-crowned Sparrow to me.

That's kinda what I thought, too. I remember when I posted it for ID I was hoping for a Chipping, which would have been a lifer for me. And in my Sibley's, it looks so much like a Chipping, as well as an immature White-crowned. I don't remember who or how many chimed in on the ID, but the overall consensus was Chipping, so I took the ID I wanted and ran with it. 

That's why I asked in my post above for correction if needed. Thank you for your input.

Anyone else???

Now that I’m on my larger screen, it’s 100% a White-crowned.
