I found these two birds in the mountains today. They sure could sing! Any idea what they are?

Thanks

The 2nd is a sparrow I believe. See lots of these out here. The other 2 not sure about. Maybe another type of sparrow.

Killdeer0007,

The fact that you said they sing like crazy give the first clue. The second is the bird in the second photo has brown stripes on its chest and a brown stripe behind his eye.My guess is that it is aSong Sparrow. Go to thisbird forum and post your questioni there. Be more specific as to location ect. Good photos by the way.

The first and last birds are the House Sparrow...

The Center one is probably a Song Sparrow. Hmm? Is a song Sparrow.

1. Male House Sparrow (English Sparrow) note the gray head and brown eye patch.
2. Song Sparrow,
Very pretty! Wish we could hear them
