Ring-billed Gull? :lol:
Lincoln's Sparrow?
White-crowned Sparrow?

Cowboy Bean is coming this way!

He's sharp as needle and bright as a dollar,

Wear No. 3 shoe and a 16 collar.

He's full of vim and he's full of vigor,

fast on the draw, and quick on the trigger.

So all you bandits and thieves take warning

Or you'll be in a hospital bed by morning!

And the doc'll give you kind of a shake,

And he'll hear the rattle that the bullets make,

And he'll shake his head and he'll say "oh my"

I can't cure this and I ain't gunna try!

Yipp-I-day!

For Two-Gun-Freddy has plugged this guy!

I'd be surprised if GBBG was a lifer for you. Maybe something weird like Slaty-backed

I am absolutely FLOORED that nobody got the gull. I really thought that it would have been the first thing that was guessed.

And yes, the gull in the front IS a GBBG, but that's not the lifer.

The two sparrows are different birds.

Okay, so we've got #1 correct. Someone also got one of the two sparrows correctly.

So who can come up with the correct answers for #2 and #3?
