Double-check your sparrows!

Be sure to take a careful look at any sparrows you find during the migration season. When I saw this bird hopping around the garden and bathing in the bird bath, I figured it was a Song Sparrow. What a surprise when it turned out to be a Lincoln's Sparrowan uncommon species in this area!

Sparrows are very easily overlooked, and I agree! Sparrows are one of my favorite species and I always love seeing a new sparrow species.
