Black-throated Sparrow (Amphispiza bilineata) (1) CONFIRMED

- Comments: "Saw clearly though briefly through binoculars at 60 feet. Just east of the lower (western) gate. Gray-brown sparrow with plain upperparts and an unmarked breast. Strong white eyebrow that extended well behind the eye, white whiskers, and a black throat patch. There was a second bird with it that may have been another black throated sparrow but I didn’t see it well."
