Hi.  Shot this unfamiliar bird today in the parking lot of a hawkwatch in northern NJ.  I found what seems to be a really close match with my Audubon app for Android, but the bird’s range seems to be off.  Could this be a Clay-colored Sparrow?  Thanks.

Just a little surprised that the app would be off.  They have the range being essentially a narrowing vertical band down the middle of North America.  They are shown as "Uncommon" in southern Ontario (Niagara Falls region), though, so I suppose maybe this could be even more of a "stray", haha.

Remains to be seen whether anyone else chimes in, though.  Thanks for your swift response, though.  I do believe you've lowered my record to having a response within just 5 minutes of posting! 

 

EDIT: I see now, you were agreeing with Snow Bunting.  Thanks for your second!

That is a Snow Bunting.

 

Oops, I do stand corrected.  Hadn't seen your post until after responding to Kevin.  Thanks, that does look to be a perfect match, for both plumage and range.

And the Life List creeps up another tick tonight...  😁
