   Clay-colored Sparrow (Spizella pallida) - CCSP (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. Clay-colored Sparrow, Westchester Park LINK
    DATE: Feb 16, 2018 @ 2:15pm, 2 day(s) ago
    Everyone:
    This morning, I refound a clay-colored sparrow that Dan Cooper first reported last Friday. It was in the middle of the park, feeding in grass, associating with a dozen savannah sparrows, southwest of the tennis courts (that is, not in the grassy outfield of the baseball fields). The little flock moved around quite a bit, with people walking the park, and dogs here and there, and a guy flying a model airplane, so I imagine it could be found anywhere.

    DATE: Oct 3, 2017 @ 3:40pm, 5 month(s) ago
    Birders,
    
    Grasshopper Sparrow continues midday at Peck Water Conservation Park. Brittany O'Connor and Joyce Brady were leaving as I arrived about 2:20pm and directed me to the area where they left it minutes before. Still it took a hour of effort to refind it - perched in a small willow near the northeast end of the grassy swale on the south side of the peninsula.
    
    Bobolink, Clay-colored Sparrow and others were also easily seen.
    
    Good birding,
