This beauty is a "Black Throated Sparrow, taken just out side of our rig.
The Black Throated Sparrow is a small bird native in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico.
That includes northeastern California, southwestern Wyoming, and southeastern Colorado. The Black Throated Sparrow that live north may migrate south to the to the desert of the southern United States during winter months.
The one that do that are also known as the Desert Sparrow. For they prefers arid and dry desert hillsides and shrubs for breeding and nesting. They can survive for a long period with out water. They get their need from seeds and insects.
They are foragers, and typically eat insects and seeds. When traveling, the Black-throated Sparrow may be found in small colonies.
DesertDale must restock our water supply now, as our gages say it is getting low.
Enjoy life to the fullest. Kitfoxgal
