      Feather

      PS. I also saw in that bird a Vesper AND a Baird's, so. . .interesting - the wing coverts were the only feature that really stood out for me as being Savannah.

      Hi, all!

      John Top of Spring Valley sent me a photo of a sparrow he and his friend
      Bill Jones found at San Jacinto Wildlife Area the last week of March, and
      couldn't tell whether it was a Vesper or a Savannah (and they missed seeing the
      tail when it flushed). Frankly, because of the angle of light, it's hard for me
      to tell, too; it seems to have aspects of both! I posted the shot on my
      website, and it can be viewed at

      _http://miriameaglemon.com/Mystery%20Sparrow.htm_
      (http://miriameaglemon.com/Mystery%20Sparrow.htm)

      Unfortunately the comments form I put in there doesn't work, so if you could
      respond directly to the list, that would be great! Thanks,
