Taken today near Toppenish, Washington. Hoping for more than a Song Sparrow. ID help is always appreciated. Thanks, Mac.Posted Image

Yeah, I can't tell enough about the bird from this photo to make any kind of guess, although Savannah and Vesper come to mind from the habitat/behavior.

It's a lifer. The picture would be better if it wasn't sitting on a cow pie, but it's still a lifer. Thanks for the ID, Mac.

Yup. I agree, not that Matty needs any verification when it comes to Sparrows.

I eBird, do YOU? www.ebird.org
