It appears to be a Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow
Oops, make that a Savannah Sparrow. Confused now.. lol...
what time of year was this taken John?
yeah - I'm leaning toward Savannah Sparrow too ... http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.surfbirds.com/media/gallery_photos/20050612054940.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.surfbirds.com/namericanbirds/sparrows-finches.html&h=375&w=500&sz=39&tbnid=vWgnYgoqCXGYUM:&tbnh=98&tbnw=130&prev=/images%3Fq%3DSavannah%2BSparrow%2Bphotos&usg=__9Sn47Rw43ghABLyx7J9_WaEcG2Y=&ei=skhLS6LBIcjO8Qalo-XxAg&sa=X&oi=image_result&resnum=5&ct=image&ved=0CBEQ9QEwBA
Great photos & blog, John!
Well I'm not completely sold on the Savannah, but I'll go with it for now until someone tells me different. Only reason is the size. This particular bird spotted in Bridgewater in the spring time seemed bigger than the previous SS' that i've seen. Coloration does seem to lead me to the SS though.
