Vesper Sparrow

This is the first good look at this sparrow and the first time I was able to photograph it.
Rather non descript or to use the technical birding term it is a Little Brown Job or LBJ.
Not to be confused with Lady Bird Johnson.

Thanks to Allen Woodliffe who told me where the sparrows were. 

Pooecetes gramineus

The Vesper Sparrow responds quickly to changes in habitat; it is often the first species to occupy reclaimed mine sites and abandon old farm fields as they return to forest.
