    I’m afraid not, Dena. But good guess!

    Remember- it was photographed in December in Ohio.

    Junior, could it be a Savannah Sparrow.  I’m not a good guesser, but I looked at the birds in the field guide and it sure looks like one.  Look….I may not be a connoisseur of birds, but I’m trying….lol

    And keep on trying! Savannah sparrow isn’t correct either. Remember… this bird was seen during the winter. Keep in mind that when you find a potential match you need to check the range maps, also.

     

    Keep on trying, everyone.

    I was beginning to be cross-eyed checking all the markings with the ones in my field guide.  I even took out the map of the U.S. just to make sure.  Ok, here goes, I’m trying one more guess……Swamp Sparrow!

    What I learned from your threads Junior, is that  it’s difficult to name birds….especially sparrows.   There are so many of them.

    Hi ladywolf4650. Nope, it’s not an American tree sparrow. But the answer is…

    Congrats, Stella. You got it!

    This Swamp Sparrow was photographed in Ohio in early December.

     

    I’ll post the next quiz later today.
