very sweet voice.
Liam , i think that I will go with your suggestion of Lincoln's on this one! Thanks:)
The black spot on the breast is caused by the overlap of feathers. They vary depending on how the bird preens or holds the feathers and any sparrow can show them.Your call, but Lincoln's seems most likely. :)
Liam it had a dark black spot on the breast.The song was softer like a Lincolns. The Song sparrow seems louder compared to this one.
Either a Song Sparrow (Melospiza melodia) or a Lincoln's Sparrow (Melospiza lincolnii). I'm kinda leaning Lincoln's based on the sharper bill and fainter breast streaking. However, the picture isn't the best for an ID. Since you heard it call, you may be able to ID it.Lincoln's: http://xeno-canto.org/browse.php?query=L...Song: http://xeno-canto.org/browse.php?query=S...
