Hello everybody. It is fine that You will see my pictures. I do not know English very well. Therefore, it may be some comments or answers seem strange. I'm trying to learn more. Thank you for your understanding.

It seems to be a good time for them with all this water

@Doug: It is their larder. This is the only genus of the sparrows, which may dive.

The ones I see in Colorado are dark gray without the white chest. Cool little birds.
