Yesterday I spotted a Harris's Sparrow on the south end of the Westerly Creek open space in east Denver (Stapleton). Someone saw the eBird post yesterday and was able to re-find it and get a photo to confirm it. Here is my eBird post with the directions: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34953370. It was east of Beeler Street at about 23rd Ave. I bird this area often and I thought I saw a Harris's in this same spot back in November but I didn't get a great look at it. I wouldn't be surprised if it spent the winter here. Can anyone tell me if these are "rare" here year-round?
