Song Sparrow

Melospiza melodia

 

One of the many, very variable song sparrows at John Heinz (Tinicum) NWR. There were light ones like this one with very little marking on the breast, and there were others that were so dark it was hard to tell them apart from Fox Sparrows. I've never seen the variability this broad in one location.
