Speckly & Medium Bird at Beach Westport connecticut

Recommended Posts

Apologies to my english (as usual)!!!


i was at a beach & swimming this weekend in Westport Connecticut  and I was thinking to birds and I see this bird by parking lot then it flew to woods and i got to be obsess to chase it and chase it. I know there are many sparrows of connecticut but this was bigger and it had the striping on chest.

I manage the picture and I have hope to learn what it is. 

i hope it is a bird worth it because when I got back to beach all  of my clothing was stole! Walk home wearing only small speedo was not fun! But I still love USA and connecticut more than poland!

thank you if you can identify

Oh no! That sucks! 

As far as your bird, it kinda looks like a House Finch but I think the beak might be too big, but it could also just be the angle. 

EDIT: Also welcome to Whatbird!

thank you..it did suck. lol


I did not even think of House FInch, and I know what they are..thank you!!! ..i will check or find more pic!

I agree with Brown-headed Cowbird.  Not sure if it's a female or a juvenile.

Oh no- really sorry about your clothes! Westport is the town right next to where I am!

OK...very good. I am reading of brown-headed cowbird now.  i am not liking what i read so far! the male look cool , though. There;s behavior of laying eggs in other nests is bad sounding , but they are native bird to usa so it is cool. 


you and others are right with identification, akiley. it looks like it to me. I love having this website to check with experts! Connecticut has so many birds!

yes, westport and surrounding towns seem too nice to think some person or people stole away my clothing. maybe it was just mistake.


Speedo is not good to wear in usa anyway i am finding. i will blame the cowbird for my naked feeling  . ha ha ha


I will come here with more bird questions....thank you all. Happy to learn birds of america now.
