This sparrow gave me the impression of not being in great health and/or very tired from flying. With its beak wide open (I assume it was hot/catching its breath) it would walk rather slowly from shrub to shrub (noticeably not flying). As I walked back toward my car, it was close to the trail and allowed me to get very close before it decided to walk away slowly. Just not normal sparrow behavior.

1
Sagebrush/Bell's Sparrow (Sage Sparrow)

Very pale individual that looked like a good candidate for sagebrush. However, it was being coy and I only got brief glimpses of it.

Grayish headed

1

In brush near pond

2

A male in the pond and a female up in the cottonwoods

1

Female. Pale, low contrast bird overall with a mostly gray/blue with greenish back, yellow throat and breast without orange wash or a chestnut necklace/collar, unstreaked white belly/vent, faint eye arcs without dark lores, and a single white wing bar (I assume there were 2 but I only saw 1). It gave one sharp call note before disappearing into vegetation. I saw this bird in the tree-of-heaven patch along the road uphill from the cottonwoods.

2

Both appeared to be pale females

5

Many butter butts around—in the shrubs mostly.

Many Wilson’s warbler
