Golden Eagle Kind of Day, Leucistic Red-tailed Hawk, and the Henslow's Back Story
It turns out the Higbee Henslow's Sparrow (not reported today that I know of, scroll down for a photo) was first found and tentatively identified by my neighbors, Bob and Stephanie Brown. Bob found Michael O'Brien, who came over and made a postitive i.d.. Michael et. al. facilitated a large group of birders so that many folks got good looks. It apparently was the last North American sparrow for one participant, who made a donation to CMBO in Michael's name.
In other news, a Tundra Swan appeared on Bunker Pond today, and 2 female Redheads were on Lighthouse Pond.
