    Default need ID please

    This bird appeared in my back yard today but I am having trouble identifying it. I'm thinking a Lincoln's Sparrow. It's fairly large and pretty drab with uniform markings/streaks. Thanks for your help.Name:  sparrow-unknown--on-twig-EA7G0856.jpg

    Hi Gary, you needed to look a little farther down in your field guide...you got yourself a beautiful female Purple Finch here.

    Thanks. I thought the bill was a little thicker than the sparrow's but I wasn't sure if it was just the angle of view. Now if I can just get the male to cooperate...
