Nice rain last night. For a detailed discussion of the Sagebrush Sparrow (Artemisiospiza nevadensis) vs. canescens type Bell's Sparrow (A. belli canescens), by Peter Pyle, see Central Valley Birds post #22147, 10/25/2017, which he wrote in reference to the pictures of the sparrow below.

On side of road , running with tail up with several Savannah Sparrows. in open ( and on valley floor ! ). Originally reported as Bell's Sparrow. Well-streaked back and grayish, less contrasting malar stripe are consistent with Sagebrush Sparrow. Thanks to Steve Hampton and Frank Fogarty for review of photos and Steve's recognition of it as Sagebrush. Seen on CR 27, 2/3 way east to CR 104.IMG_3835IMG_3838IMG_3837MIMG_3823
