Vesper or Brewer's sparrow?

Recommended Posts

Thought this was a Brewer's at first (common here) but seems to be a vesper (uncommon here). A vesper would be a lifer. Do the streaks on the breast make it a vesper since Brewer's have a clear breast?  Today in southern Nevada.  Thanks!

Vesper Sparrow is correct! Note the prominent white eyering and dark-outlined auriculars.

Like you were saying, adult Brewer’s would have no streaking on the undersides and have a less prominent eyering.

Out of likes dang it, thank you.  🙂

You need a journal so you can keep track where your likes are going. Then you can write an op-ed for the New York Times, after which you can run for office on a platform chicken in every pot and unlimited likes. You'll get at least one vote.

There should be an app for that.
