  1. Another ask for help in ID'ing a sparrow for me. Using the search functions I didn't come up with House Sparrow but I figure I am probably wrong. Thanks!
  2. Officially a newbie at this hobby/obsession. I've long enjoyed photographing birds (more than other wildlife) and decided to get into it this year. Having a lot of fun but I find id'ing sparrows to be difficult. Any help with this one would be terrific. Thanks.
  3. Sparrow ID needed

    Stumped on this one perhaps without the wings it is more difficult - thanks to anyone that can help Sparrow by Revup67, on Flickr
  4. Sparrows

    Let's see how these sparrows go. North Central Florida, La Chua Trail 1/11/13 Thanks. All should be different individuals. More pictures are available, too. #1 Song I hadn't noticed the relatively bright orange legs before. https://picasaweb.go...373190507806146 #2 Song https://picasaweb.go...373185795724354 #3 Song https://picasaweb.go...373168319972002 #4 Vesper https://picasaweb.go...373593430982002 #5 Vesper https://picasaweb.go...373758842167442 #6 Vesper https://picasaweb.go...373754431863314 #7 Chipping https://picasaweb.go...373904213691426
  5. Desert sparrow

    Taken in September at Malheur NWR in central Oregon. Here's another one where I have done a better job of deciding what it isn't than what it is. I don't know if this is as good enough view to identify. I would have liked to have gotten a bit more profile but I have found birds to be rather willful subjects. Thanks for the help.
  6. Thanx for your comments. I have my belief but dont want to poison the well
  7. Sparrow ID x2

    These two photos of two different birds were taken at the beginning of November, 2012, in Central Oregon. They seem to be the same species to me, and I'm making the uneducated guess that they're both sparrows of some sort. Please and thank you for any information, this is a learning process for me.
  8. Hello All! I'm brand new here and would love some help in identifiying this bird. I live in St. Louis , MO and have never seen a bird this white before that seems to be a member of either the sparrow or bunting family. I'm guessing it's either some kind of sparrow mutation (albino?) or perhaps a snow bunting. The guide says that a snow bunting's beak is black in summer, but yellow-orange in winter. But there doesn't seem to be enough black up the top of the back to be a snow bunting? I'm just not sure. If anyone knows, please speak up! Thanks!
  9. I took a picture of this sparrow (or finch, I'm not sure) in Southwestern Louisiana. It looks to be a female or immature. I also took a less clear picture of the bird it was flying and talking with, most likely a male. Any help with IDing would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Road Trip sparrows

    Here are some sparrows from somewhere between Florida and Idaho. I don't get near enough practice to feel comfortable with sparrows, so thanks for some ID help. More pictures are available, if needed. 1) From field notes only: East of Billings, MT 11/6/12 Back and head view only, Sparrow - rufous cheek patch, white outer tail feathers, yellowish strip above eye Thinking maybe an immature American Tree sparrow? I understand that's not much to go on. 2) East of Billings, MT 11/7/12 https://picasaweb.go...409415521914434 3) Pratt, KS 10/27/12 https://picasaweb.go...409449406668626 4) House? Grand Teton NP 11/2/12 https://picasaweb.go...409445479772658 5) Wind Cave NP 11/8/12 https://picasaweb.go...409468202924994
  11. Picture was taken in Ontario,Canada, June 6th 2012, I think it might be a savannah or fox sparrow, but it doesn't look right Head looks too big and under tail is white instead of red or brown Any suggestion would be appreciated Thank-you kim
  12. Hello again! I'm not entirely sure what this bird is. It was hopping around on the ground at the Back Bay Fens in Boston, MA, though I couldn't tell what it was after. It looks like it could be some kind of a finch or a really heavily streaked Pine Siskin, but I'm totally unsure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! http://www.flickr.com/photos/31355397@N05/7900736404/in/photostream
  13. I've got another Massachusetts bird I'm having problems with. This one is also from Peddocks Island in Boston Harbor, and I have no earthly idea what it might be. Thanks for any help/direction on where to go with this!
  14. I'm away from home and unable to ID these two sparrows seen at Table Rock dam near Branson https://plus.google.com/photos/104353877176293053533/albums/5777023523174791137.

  16. So, simple song sparrow with some unique breast markings? North-Central WI Grassland / Marsh small bird
  17. Another sparrow

    Bad picture is making me second guess. Seems like a clean breast with well defined collar, and the tail posture is upright. Yet... Another, another Song? Channel Islands NP (Prisoner's) 7/4/12 https://picasaweb.google.com/108000139362127408898/CentralCAJuly2012?authkey=Gv1sRgCMSx0ZvP8YXtpAE#5763919052764670626 Thank you.
  18. I saw this bird today near Olympia, WA. Is it a sparrow or finch? What type?
  19. Hi All, Please see the attached pictures of the same species; I can't distinguish between these 3 sparrows: Song, Savannah or Vesper. Which one do you think it most probably is? Place taken: Southern British Columbia Can you also tell how you make that distinction? Cheers
  20. Juvie Sparrow?

    This appears to be a juvie, but what is it? Seen today near Olympia, WA?
  21. Ignore the fact I said my last post of the week would be yesterday... LOL. Just digging through my e-mail and found a few pictures sent by a close family friend. She's not a birder, but knows I love them so she'll send pictures to me.... Was trying to identify these little guys. Picture taken in Kodiak Alaska, May 16th. She said they were bouncing all over the rocks. I thought they might have had a crest, but am thinking it was wind: http://folkeye.devia...row-2-308390845 and http://folkeye.devia...row-1-308390690
  22. "Albino" sparrow?

    Taken at my home near Orlando today, hanging out with other traditional-colored sparrows. Is this the bird equivalent of an albino (for want of a better word)?
  23. I saw this sparrow at Deception Pass State Park in Washington State. I think it is a Savannah Sparrow, but not sure.
  24. I thought this sparrow was a white-crowned sparrow, but it has yellow on it's head. I saw another with just white. Is this a white-crowned? It doesn't seem to have a white throat. Seen today in Olympia, WA.
  25. This sparrow was digging in the dirt near our hotel. What type of sparrow is it?
