- Comments: "Heard and seen on east side of pond on trail. Initially thought it might be song sparrow but then heard it sing which matched my bird app song for the species and was very different from song sparrow song, which I know well. Then got additional looks at it. Black line through eye. Gray above eye. Rufous crown stripe and white mustache stripe. Relatively short tail. Spotted chest but buff colored with no central black spot."
