Thoughtful Thursday: Luck

[My first NJ drive-by Clay-colored Sparrow. . . Forsythe NWR, NJ, Tuesday, September 10 2013, found while heading out for a cup of coffee. I saw it fly up off the refuge driveway, and thought, well, hell, it's probably a chipping, but I better take a look, there's been a Clay-colored reported. . . Note the wel-defined "moustache" mark, pale lore, and contrast between gray nape and "clay-colored" buffy breast band, which separate this species from Chipping Sparrow. Click to enlarge photo.]
