This first photo shows 2 birds. We originally thought it might be an adult and a juvenile Black-throated Sparrow. But once we looked it up, we realized that the bird on the left is Rufous-winged Sparrow which is very rare in the US. In fact, the range map on the page shows it only creeping up into Arizona about as far as Madera Canyon. We were quite lucky to see it. We saw 3 of them total. The Black-throated Sparrows were all over the place. These are handsome little birds.
