This morning Phil Wire, Jeff Wright and I birded the Chubb Trail, and we
came across this little guy. In the field we believed it to be a Grasshopper
Sparrow, partly due to vocalizations made by the bird (but which we
admittedly have little experience with). However, after looking at these
pictures the field markings on the bird make us think juvenile Henslow's
Sparrow may be more likely. Any comments on this would be greatly
appreciated. I'm confident that it is an Ammodramus sp., just not sure which
one.

Thanks.
