Sparrow help and A confirmation


Recommended Posts

Here are a few from the front yard.  This morning in Southern California.

1.  A sparrow I think.  Lots of House Finches, House Sparrows, Song Sparrows, White-Crowned Sparrows, and Chipping Sparrows.  I thought chipping sparrow, but doesn't match my ID book.  Possibly a female of the ones I listed above.

2.  Not a great shot, but I think a Western Blue Bird on the left and House Finch on the right

Thanks for the help.

#1 is actually a House finch.  The face pattern isn't nearly bold enough for a Purple and the culmen (upper ridge of the beak) is much too curved.

Agreed

I agree with The Bird Nuts.
