Immature Lark Sparrow - Ocean Meadows
Tue, 4 December, 2012 -- There is a very pale, 1st winter LARK SPARROW feeding
in the yard. It is light gray and white, but the wing greater coverts' black centers cut
through the white tips to make the upper wing bar look scalloped. My sparrows
photographic field guide points out this feature twice.
We have had three adult Lark Sparrows since 2006, but this is the first youngster.
