Resin Northumberland United Kingdom (Zone 9a) 1-2 Song Sparrow
P_Edens Missouri City, TX (Zone 9a) I really studied those sparrows to try to ID these. I don't know if I'll ever get it. Thanks so much, Resin.
P_Edens Missouri City, TX (Zone 9a) Resin,
I reopened this one after studying the books again. Can you explain how you tell the third bird (ID as Vesper) from a Lark Sparrow. It looks like Lark to me, but I don't know what to look for.
Resin Northumberland United Kingdom (Zone 9a) LS has a grey, not pink bill, unstreaked flanks, and doesn't have that paler area in the middle of the ear coverts
P_Edens Missouri City, TX (Zone 9a) Thanks yet again, Resin! I do see all of those points now. While the beak color and bit of light color in the middle of the ear coverts is subtle to my eye, those streaks are plain as day now that I know to look there. This was a very good learning tool for me.
I appreciate your patience.
