White throated, starling, savannah?

Recommended Posts

Southern Nevada today. I've never seen a starling that looks like this. Thought I'd ask you guys about the sparrows since I seem to misidentify them even while looking at reference photos. 😛 Thanks!

1. Yes, White-throated Sparrow

2. Brewer's Blackbird.  Starlings have much sharper bills.

3. Lincoln's Sparrow.  Note the grayish head and back, buffy malar, and thin streaks on buffy upper breast and flanks.

Just wanted to add the Brewer's blackbird is a female as the males have those bright yellow eyes. Agree that the photo of the Lincoln is great.

European Starlings are not brown in October.
