Subject: [MDBirding] Puzzling Sparrow
I got photos of a sparrow at Swan Harbor with a real strong malar stripe, that I just can sandwich into a Chipping Sparrow. On the other hand, the lores do appear dark. Kindly look at the shots at the top of my Flickr queue, and advise, it really is just a Chipping Sparrow. Pleaser reply off-list, unless you think it might be of interest to the group.
