Miner's Ridge trail near Glider Port junction
San Diego County, California, US
Juvenile (mostly flightless) bird calling for food/attention from a parent. Oddly, yesterday I didn't notice a single Song Sparrow but today there were at least 5 juveniles out and hopping around the edges of shrubs while begging. They aren't old enough to know to stay hidden so time will tell how many survive.
fruit was hooked
don't know the ssp.
not sure about the subspecies
C. densiflora ssp. exserta is not available in the database. Please update.
