Daily Bird: Botteri's Sparrow

Today's bird is the Botteri's Sparrow.  It's the kind of bird you might pass over because of its looks.  Think of it as the ugly duckling of Sparrows. Not because it turns into something's a very ordinary looking bird.  But it's important because it's so rare in south Texas.  Seeing this bird is a pretty big deal.  I took this photo at the King Ranch on April 28, 2012.
