‘EASTERN’ SPARROWS

My four-day excursion to Le Grande and back took me through Harney County…and there were those sparrows we often find on the Malheur trips.  I have two Klamth Bird Observatory Malheur trips coming up next month.  But the sparrows are already there…awaiting our arrival.brew spar1 (1280x960) BS2Brewer’s Sparrow above, same Brewer that has a blackbird namesake, 19th Century Boston ornithologist.  Below, the newly renamed Sagebrush Sparrow, a flashier sort than the plain Brewer’s.  Both were in Harney County.
