Sparrow-y Goodness

Pretty much the first day we heard that the Clay-colored Sparrows had gotten to town is when we banded a couple (a week and a half ago now - see the bottom two pics). I had almost forgotten how tiny they are - like a Chipping Sparrow!

We also caught a Savannah Sparrow - that is a fantastic find! Have to look carefully - they sometimes appear like a cross between a White-throated with the yellow in front, and have a mottled chest not unlike a Song Sparrow.
