Juvy Vesper Sparrow ?

Postby Russ Emmons » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:11 pm

Found this 5th July at the end of the Jordan River Valley Rd. Near US 131 & M32

Best I can tell it's a Juvy Vesper Sparrow---any thoughts on this?

I think you have it right Russ. I would like to see a more distinctive white eye ring,
but it does not always show in the juv.. Nice photo. ID can also be from a process of
elimination, and I think Vespers fits this bird better than anything else.

By the way, the white cardinal flower still good today, Sunday. Thanks again!
