We had great views of a Harris's Sparrow in the backyard donning plumage we'd never seen before: Breeding! A striking bird with black molting into the crown, but already in the throat and forecrown, and with a little "V" neck. Bright orange bill and a little black wedge-shape on the rear of the auricular. It lacked all buffy tones of the Harris's we'd seen a couple months ago. Could it be the same bird?!
