White-crowned Sparrow
1
Harris's Sparrow

This bird was seen with white-crowned sparrows, white-throated sparrows, and one spotted towhee. It appeared to be a juvenile bird that was larger than the other sparrows (but not the towhee), had a pink bill and a somewhat blotchy black bib. I initially saw the bird on the Bird Walk, then returned to the Nature Center and saw it by the first feeder from the parking lot as you approach the visitor's center. Sondra Williamson and Faith Flower shared the bench and the views of this sparrow with me for about 15 minutes.
