Subject: [cobirds] Possible Sagebrush Sparrow Cherry Creek SP

This afternoon, approximately 2 pm, while walking the path to Beaver Ponds, on the eastside of the wetlands, a sparrow popped out from the adjacent shubs, about 20 yards away and perched in the interior of the shrub. The throat of the sparrow was clean white. Side of the throat was thin darkish stripe, (lateral throat stripe). Adjacent to that stripe was a clean white malar stripe. The head appeared a neutral brown tone with what I thought included some grayish tones. The tail was longish and was occasionally flicked up and down. I kept waiting a second, more confirming look, but that never happened, consequently this unusual sighting for Cherry Creek Res. should be a listed as possible, maybe others will also see this sparrow or even better snap a convincing photo.
