Two birds I can’t identify

Recommended Posts

 I hope somebody can help me? I tried everything to find two birds that have been visiting my front lawn and feeder. Are used the filter system in Ibird Canada. Included are two pictures that I took as close as I could get to them.Included are two pictures that I took as close as I could get to them. One was in the birdfeeder and number two was on the ground about 6 feet away

Just now, Charlie Spencer said:


I think #1 is a female House Sparrow.

I agree with Dark-Eyed Junco for the second bird (juncos are in the sparrow family).

Also, next time please remember to include the date and location you saw the birds.  Thanks!

House sparrow was the other option I was thinking so that makes sense

The first bird is not a House Sparrow -- its facial markings, especially the malar stripe, are too defined and the wing pattern isn't quite right.  I'm inclined to think it's a Clay-colored Sparrow due to the tan color (as opposed to more orange in a Chipping) and face pattern, but a more specific location would help.
