Tanner has agreed to allow visitors tomorrow. Here are the rules that he has stipulated. There is some parking in the drive but not a lot. You can park in the drive but you are not allowed to block the main drive from the garage to the road. If there is no parking in the drive available you will have to park down the road on a side street. The main road seems to be narrow and busy. He needs to be able to get in and out. After parking walk to the left (east) side of garage and go behind it. There is a block patio that people can stand in and look for the sparrow in surrounding bushes. There is a lot of habitat. The bird is coming to the feeder on the west side of the house and goes into the thick vine just to the left of the feeder on the property line. Please take him a bag of bird food for his courtesy of allowing visitors.
Bird was seen roughly around 5:15 or so and then not again until 7pm.
Good luck and be sure to provide updates for others.
