Jeff, it is generally not good etiquette to find rare birds and then eat

I bit more on the Black-throated Sparrow. It seemed to really like the
wooden fence area in the nature area next to the dry pond. I'm not sure
what plant/weed is growing there, but it was feeding on the seeds from it.
It would occasionally fly south of that area into the thicker vegetation,
but would come back to the fence to feed frequently. It was calling
frequently. Only other bird of note was the MacGillivray's Warbler that I
found in the southwest corner of the nature area, close to the heavily
drilled eucalyptus tree.
