Clay-colored Sparrow

Exact count. 2/3 photographed. As a rule here, I have found this sp. to be the most difficult to observe and photograph and have also found that pishing (even faint pishing) simply moves them deeper into cover. Another rule: they're tied to islands of leafy veg/shrubbery among the grasses. They often peer out from low down in this veg; very frustrating for IDs so patience is required. Naturally, the "best" sparrow at this site is the hardest to observe ;)

Vesper Sparrow

Both individuals photographed. Out of three observations of VESP here, they have all behaved the same way when flushed/disturbed: flew from ground to approx 25-30 ft. in a tree.

Savannah Sparrow (Savannah)

Just S of sparrow field location I flushed several short-tailed brownish/gray-backed sparrows. One perched and provided a good view.

3
Lincoln's Sparrow

What a treat! All three photographed. Inquisitive in general, esp. so when I softly pished.

sparrow sp.

Mostly Spizellids and my gut feeling was mostly FISP and CHSP. Cannot say for certain as they were in flight then disappeared into cover.
