    Found this guy on a road trip to the Badlands area of South Dakota - can't figure out what kind of sparrow he is though. Any help would be appreciated!

    It could be a juvenile yellow bellied finch.

    Actually, a birding friend and brother priest told me it was an immature Western Meadowlark. He said the Eastern and Western are hard to distinguish, but being it was western South Dakota it was very likely Western. I thought was a cute bird. Hope to find more this fall during migration. Now if we could just skip past winter...

    Good call. Could very well be just that. Here's an Eastern Meadowlark (one of which is mine). We had a lot of them flocking to our backyard in TN.

    Nice capture. Lovely birds; I certainly can't tell the Eastern from the Western! I guess like he said it's in the call.
