Today's Bird: The Rufus Crowned Sparrow

Today's bird is the Rufus Crowned Sparrow!  It's a bird that lives mostly in the American Southwest.  I really struggle to identify different types of Sparrows because to me, they all look like little brown birds.  Like its relatives, the Rufus-Crowned's pretty nondescript. I actually had to get some help on the ID, so thanks to the people of WhatBird!  The win here is really the photograph itself; we were hiking some trails and he landed in a bush about 3 feet away. I took at Eisenhower Park outside of San Antonio, Texas on March 25, 2012.
