Brewers Sparrow? Reno NV USA 8/5/20 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I took a few photos of this bird today (Aug 5, 2020) at Swan Lake Nature Study Area (near Reno NV). I have never seen a Brewers Sparrow before but it seemed to look most like this bird and there have been a few reports recently of Brewer's Sparrows near Swan Lake. Perhaps the streaks are because it is a juvenile? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kathy
