Observation details

Bird flushed in dog's face then led it in a low, weaving flight through the sagebrush. I first thought it was a barely-fledged young bird and then realized it was probably a nest defense. Ehrlich in "Birder's Handbook" confirms. White outer tail feathers on a little brown bird. Nest at base of plant and grasses.
