Sparrows Capital Reef NP 8-7-17

The sparrows out west gave me fits, probably because most of them are juvenile Chippies. I'm hoping one of these two (not the cowbird) could be a Sage Sparrow. I could hear one singing nearby, but never got a look at the singer.

Photos now attatched

As you can probably guess I was having difficulty and somehow got the same thread in twice without photos. They should be here this time.

Both look like Chipping.

Agreed. I believe the "cowbird" is a House Finch, though.
