Sparrow Help

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm pretty sure this is not a House Sparrow since it was smaller and didn't have the same behavior.  I'm also pretty sure it's not a Song Sparrow since no streaked breast and also smaller.  I'm thinking a Chipping Sparrow even though similar to Clay-colored.  All help welcomed and appreciated.  Sorry iPhone photos but with an 11 so a little better than my 10. :)

Chipping Sparrow is correct. Clay-colored have whiter eyebrows, a buffier breast, and an eyeline that stops at the eyes and does not go to the lores as in a Chipping.

Agree. 

Also,  please post location and date for photos in the future.  It is really helpful.
