I like this photo Silver. The color difference between the bird and tree makes this shot hard to capture but you've done it. I'm not sure what kind of Sparrow that is if it is one. All of my Sparrows English, White-crowned have a dark bill and no ring around the eye.

Nice shot. It might be a golden-crowned sparrow.

Looks more like the Western sub-species of the Field Sparrow.

But who knows?

Sort of looks like a female white-crowned sparrow with that pink bill and the nice white wing stripes.

Before I nake my pontifical pronouncements, I take a lot of drugs, sacrifice a Bull to Zeus, and then make sure that even if I'm wrong, the dog made me say it. :blah:

If it's a female White Crowned Sparrow, then it is an immature one. If it's a Field Sparrow (and that's what the oracle of Delphi told me it was) then it's the western subspecies:"Arenacea."

If, I'm, wrong wait till I go on vacation to inform me....

Well.....carefully looking at the evidence, I agree with Dave. The white eye ring gives it away.

I'd have to agree with Dave also. For a white-crowned the chest color is all wrong. And as VP noted the full white eye ring is the giveaway.
