It would be great so see some photos to go over the plumage variances. HASP are usually molting (body) in mid-March.

We only get a couple Harris's Sparrows here. That is still holding true as of today.

I supposed plumage changes were photo-period driven, but maybe it's not that simple.  
I've never seen that many HASP at one time!  One at Cooley Lake today was a treat.

This evening I counted 27 Harris' Sparrows at my feeders.  I have noticed that they seem to act like the Cardinals.
Most feed early dawn and then return around 5:00 pm and stay for about 30 minutes.
A few frequent the feeders during the day but only 2-3 at a time.

Several of these are almost in full breeding plumage. That seems a little odd.  But look at the year!
