Pacific Northwest Sparrow ID help


Recommended Posts

Not sure.  Taken in the Portland area in a  river this weekend.  May just be a House Sparrow, but seemed different in its pattern and behavior.  Second picture difficult to see, didn't have the good camera, just an iPhone.  

Still trying to improve on my sparrow ID skills.  Thanks for the help

you and me both. I've been waiting for someone else to reply, for that reason. I knew it wasn't a house sparrow and I was leaning towards song as well but wasn't ready to commit to that based on those pictures. Song is my guess but I would rather have better photos or be there and see AND hear it. (so glad their call is so different from the local sparrows we have here)
