Field Sparrow sighting


Patricia Weber
 

Passing on information from Kathy Eklund:  12.1.2020 Similar to an ATSP with white eye ring, gray head with rufous head stripes, orange bill & no chest spot.. runs along the ground and flys low between sagebrush. 
Found .1 mile south of the cattle guard entrance to the campground.  Curlew Campground near Stone, Idaho.  She had seen the pending Idaho Rare Bird report by a Rebecca Jones posted a couple of days ago.

FWIW, this report came in to IBRC on November 29 and it's for 3 individuals. Normally I don't publish reports until a number has been issued but this one somehow got published so it's accessible by anyone at:
