1st Clay-colored Sparrow at Progreso Lakes, 1/27/21

 I was brushing my teeth this morning and looked out the bedroom window only to see a little Spizella feeding with the House Sparrows.  So I spit out the tooth brush and grabbed the camera and managed the first shot.  I was hoping for a Brewer's Sparrow but I'm just fine with it being a Clay-colored, bird species #234 for our yard.  It hung around all day so I got a few more shots.  Visiting birders later told me they saw it yesterday also.

The White-throated Sparrow is also still around with the resident Olive Sparrow and four Lincoln's Sparrows.  With drought conditions becoming pretty severe, I would not be surprised to see more wintering brush country birds show up in our yard.
