Yellow-browed Bunting

Yellow-browed Bunting

Not a great photo but a pretty scarce bird. I saw the above male Yellow-browed Bunting in one of the parks just outside town this morning. It was hopping unobtrusively around in the shade and I noticed it in the distance and though oh right just another Black-faced Bunting. I pointed my camera at it, noticed the head pattern and thought it was a Rustic Bunting at first but then the bird’s head caught the sun and I saw the yellow eyebrow……….

Difficult to get close to but I was very happy to see it: my 4th lifer of 2020.
