Observation details

Location: - 37.0934x-113.9489 Bird first seen flying across the road and disappearing into tall brush. WE played SAGS, but the beginning of the recording is Bell's Sparrow, and the bird immediately responded and perched up at the top of some Rabbit Brush. It moved to a Joshua Tree and then the ground nearby while we watched for about 10 minutes. Head was gray-blue, with a white spot in front of and above the eye. Bright white throat and malar separated by a dark and obvious malar stripe. Dark central breast spot, light thin streaks at the upper part of the flanks. Blurry brown and gray flanks, with minimal thin streaking--streaks mostly absent from sides. Undersides clean white. Back was light brown and gray, with fine slightly darker brown streaks. No thick or blurry streaks, and depending on the lighting the streaks were sometimes very hard to make out. Tail was all dark from above--no white outer edge, but had a slight white edge underneath that could be seen when flying over the road. This is within range for this species.
