HELP WITH ID PLEASE!!

We had this bird at Carbon Cyn. yesterday. 2 ladies and I got bad photos. I'm thinking not a female Red-winged Blackbird or Brown-headed Cowbird. Looks something like a Rose-breasted Grosbeak but...
Check the white makings under the tail and white on wings, brown pattern on upper back, heavily streaked breast... Joyce's photo made the bill look light colored and thicker. I couldn't copy hers.

Hey Dave,

as Bob says, this is the time of year for there to be plenty of juveniles around that are right out of the nest. How about a juvenile Spotted Towhee for your bird? Bill, legs and tail proportions look about right.

Keep up the good work lads, and lasses. It is indeed always a high point of the day checking in here to see what's new.

I agree with little Z, Juvenile Spotted Towhee.
And a nice pic of a young Western Bluebird too.

After climbing at Holcomb Pinnacles Saturday
, as the sun was going down, I saw this young Pygmy Nuthatch get some dinner and beg for more.

Also, maybe a last bug for a Green-tailed Towhee.

The University of Montana runs two nest cams of ospreys in Missoula and Lolo, MT. There are six chicks between the two nests. Check it out at

It's easy to waste lots of time!

Great photos (as usual). Love the baby Reilly - especially hearing his progress. And Western Tanagers - love. For some reason they are a bird that reminds me of Colorado. Thanks everyone!

within about 100' of home.
