Everybody really was interested in the unknown sparrow mixed with my yard Chipping Sparrows. Most believe that it's not a Chipping Sparrow. A lot believe it's a Clay-colored Sparrow. Even more are leaning toward a hybrid sparrow. The Brewer's, Chipping, and Field Sparrows have been documented as having hybridization with-in. I feel strongly I can eliminate Chipping Sparrow. The face is nothing in common with a Chipping Sparrow. Here are 3 good pictures to study. I hope they come out. Flickr has done something making it difficult to share photos now. Just click on below links:

I hope these help. I was pretty excited to see such an unusual sparrow.
