Name that Bird

If you have any guesses as to what species of bird is perched on the cholla cactus in the picture below, feel free to leave a comment.  I got a picture of it from a distance, but I'm not sure what species of bird I captured in the photo.  The photo was taken in the western Mojave National Preserve.  Note the streaks of blue and white by its eyes.


  1. Is it possibly a black-throated gray warbler?? The picture in Sibley's looks closer than pic in the National Geographic, and the range in S's includes the desert.

  2. Hey, hope all is well. My money is on good ole black-chinned sparrow.
