Bell's Sparrow

31 July 2013. Titlow Hill Rd./FS Route 1, Humboldt County, CA. Obviously a juvenile by the streaky breast but I can't say whether or not it's a "Bell's" or a "Sagebrush." Nonetheless, this is only Humboldt Countie's 4thish record of this bird.ADDENDUM: I have come to the conclusion that this is a Bell's Sparrow as have many others that have seen these and other, better photos.
