Savannah Sparrow

When I took this sparrow picture I had thought it was a Song Sparrow, seeing that it had a dark breast spot, however for a Song Sparrow the spot was a bit off center.  Hmmmm. then I noticed that the sparrow had yellow lores! A cross between a Song and a Savannah Sparrow??! then I checked my Sibley's bird field guide and surprise to me!, I discovered that Savannahs can also have a dark breast spot!  So hello handsome Savannah, Welcome to Bird Alley!
