unusual sparrow, Page Springs
Overcast and dull light.  Had view of back, dark brown overall; turned its head twice and gave a profile - flat forehead and large beak.  No markings on the face jumped.  So, generally dark brown sparrow with low forehead running into a large beak, and different from the other sparrow species I saw.

Along farthest loop (Blackhawk Loop?) along river.  Small stream running along the scrub slope, and where stream jogs out closest to trail; also a multi-trunked tree near trail.  Sparrow came out of wet brush area and landed on a dead bush; flew back into wet brush area.
