Chipping Sparrow, [suspect]

By tonyguitar
Chipping Sparrow most likely. These rufous topped sparrows are so difficult to identify accurately. Very similar to Rufous Crowned but this one has black just above the beak center. A quiet and secretive bird, yet he was curious. I think it's my blue plaid shirt.
I'm keeping this shirt. TG

He doesn't have a bug lunch, as your birds usually do, Richard. Thanks John and Nathan, your comments will help me close the gap with the REAL bird experts here. TG

You should try a noise reduction software such as Noise Ninja Tony, it would really improve whats already a nice shot. The later versions of Photoshop CS do a decent job also.
