Killdear And Savannah Sparrow
1 of 20 from May 2006

Passerculus sandwichensis (Savannah Sparrow), Charadrius vociferus (Killdeer)

The Killdear is pretty distinct - it has a memorable song and is large enough to catch the eye. The little Brown Jobby I barely noticed until I looked on the computer - it's a Savannah Sparrow and I don't think I've seen one before.
