In a patch of tansy, accompanied by Lincoln's, White-crowned and others, we spotted what appeared to be a winter-plumaged Clay-colored Sparrow. It had the gray neck and clear face pattern, as well as a buffy front. We have not ever seen one in migration, though, and are still skeptical. If you could offer your opinions please that would be greatly appreciated.
