LBJs often give people fits. They all look alike: small, brown, streaked, and spotted. Even the ones that I am sure that I have nailed and could never mis-identify, show up with variations that may make me look and think twice, especially when the bird in question is among a flock of familiar birds and is not expected.
Winter is starting to swirl outside the windows, and the number and variety of birds coming to the feeders, or being seen when out walking, is much less than just a few weeks ago.
So it seems a good time to do something a little different - like testing the sparrows and other LBJs. Plus I have lots of photos that I need something to do with.
Here are a few sparrows to start off. Test yourself. If you feel like it, identify them in a comment. In a few days, I'll come back with my IDs.
