So sorry I still seem to be rarely here...just been a terrible several months...between being busy, the drought/heat here has caused lots of birding/gardening/lawn issues (cracks up to 18" deep)...and lastly, my dad and uncle passed away too :(
Anyway, I have been slowly getting out of the "fog" of it all by spending more time birding again. I'm a bit rusty IDing some of the birds. I know this time of year, juvie sparrows have striations in their breast feathers, so unsure about this sparrow...if it is a Lincoln, Savannah or a juvie sparrow of the Grasshopper, Chipping, etc.
Any help is greatly appreciated...TY :)
My deepest sympathy, SusanLouise, the death of your father and uncle must be very painful and certainly not easy to deal with. Hope with time, the pain in your heart will fade away, and you'll remember some fond memories of them.
