Singing a Field Sparrow-like song but looks more like Chipping Sparrow
This little fledgling wasn't quite ready to fly yet, but fell out of the nest. The concerned parents appeared to be Chipping Sparrows. I put him up into the tree again, but could not find the actual nest.
I feel like I should know who this is but I drawing a blank, have considered several options but none quite looks right, maybe a juvenile???
near visitors center at Dutch Charlie Area of Ridgway State Park. This one dead tree was the stopping place for several species of birds.
San Diego County, California, US
There was a flock all over this little mud puddle.
I believe this is chipping sparrow scat. There was a flock feeding in this area and on this rock.
