Grasshopper Sparrow

Small, orangy sparrow with clear breast and dark spot behind eye. Singing from the tops of sagebrush bushes. Call is a weak, insect-like buzz preceded by a couple very quiet chips. Got one in the scope and had good looks at it. Heard the other three calling in the same area. Savannah sparrows calling in area for comparison.

Savannah Sparrow

Savannah sparrows were making themselves very obvious, singing from tops of old mullein flowers and chasing each other around in aerial battles. Streaky-breasted sparrows. Yellow lores. Call consists of a couple chips, a long buzz, and two more chips.
