Correction to Previous Post

I think that I have another life bird through utter stupidity and by having my camera handy. I previously posted 2 photos of Savannah Sparrows in MLK Day . After reading Don Frieday's post on the CMBO View from the Cape blog, I think that the lighter bird is actually Vesper Sparrow. Don writes in Gull Food and Quiz Photo Answer on Feb 1st that the chestnut shoulder patch and white tail feathers are usually not visible, but the eye ring is apparent. My bird definitely has the eye ring. I'm changing my eBird to Vesper Sparrow! Thanks Don.
