Re: RFI - Black-chinned Sparrow
I think the best habitat for Black-chinned Sparrows, at least what I remember from Arizona and West Texas, is rocky hillsides with junipers. Knowing their distinctive song would be very helpful, if there is a singing bird around. Hopefully you all can pinned some of these down, as I'm sure there will be a lot of people interested in seeing them in Colorado.

Thanks again, Brandon , for the APB on this! Following is everything I know about BCSP in western Colorado ...
2005 – 24 May along Liberty Cap Trail at Colorado National Monument (CNM), singing bird that Jason saw briefly fly by him, several of us looked but could not relocate this bird at a later date
2010 – At CNM (per Brandon ), date and location details?
2010 – 28 June in Montezuma County (Susan and Jim), I have heard there was more information but I guess that was close-hold
2011 – 08 April (Frid, visiting birder from Ontario ) on Devil’s Kitchen Trail at CNM
This is a wide range of dates, and these are the only reports I am aware of. Are there others?
My intentions are to go snooping around for the species at CNM tomorrow morning.
