For the past 2 years I've been getting as much as 75 to 100 Chipping 
Sparrows in my yard. With all these chippers I always look for a Clay-
colored mixed in. Today I found something unusual. It doesn't have the 
head markings of a Chipping Sparrow. So naturally I thought it's probably a 
Clay-colored. I've asked a couple of pros, and haven't really gotten 
anywhere with it. Here are 3 pictures. Number 1) A Chipping Sparrow

Number 2) A Clay-colored Sparrow

Number 3) Today's Unknown Sparrow

  Normally if I don't see the line from the eye to the bill it's a Clay-colored. 
Maybe it's a type of hybrid,

  I figured I'd give everybody a chance on this one since I haven't heard 
from only one person.
