Sent this in to Matt at and he couldn’t identify it. We don’t get Harris Sparrows & never saw a House Sparrow ever this far north in my neck of the woods. I would love to know what kind of Sparrow it is. It’s a larger one. 6 inches at least. Thanks!


Any Ideas? Please Help Identify :-)

    Hi Joan:

    Nice find, it is the Harris’s Sparrow and they are large.

      Thanks Gary…haven’t seen one until now so they must be spreading into new territories for food.

        The picture I sent Matt from BirdWatchers wasn’t this exact one & not as cleasr and why he didn’t get such a good look at so little black spotting on his breast and head perhaps.
