This one is a tricky sparrow- my best guess is juvenile Brewer's Sparrow, but I think that Davis Lake may be a bit out of the Brewer's Sparrow's normal range.
This was the first time I had seen this species, and I am fairly sure of the ID, but it is a sparrow so I could be mistaken.

Close views within 4 feet...not sure I've had such a confiding anything for a long time. Nice that the one confiding bird is probably the rarest bird I've seen in months too.
But always with the sticks and rubbish blocking some part of the bird...ah well ;)
Brewer's Sparrow (Spizella breweri) is a small, slim species of American sparrow in the family Emberizidae. This bird was named after the ornithologist Thomas Mayo Brewer.
