Thrushes, Clay-colored Sparrow, Long-billed Dowitcher
A Bicknell's Thrush was calling intermittently near the Higbee Beach Dike this morning, and two juvenile Long-billed Dowitchers are in the pool at the top of the dike. A Swainson's Thrush was seen near Lily Lake a few minutes ago, and Michael O'Brien reports there is a Clay-colored Sparrow near the parking lot across from the fire control tower along Sunset Boulevard, a.k.a. the old magnesite plant parking area.
