Day Island part of Alton-Baker river park had the best bird for us the first thing: one beautiful Varied Thrush, before we walked away from the parking lot. There was also a small, but fun collection of sparrows at the same time, including one Fox Sparrow singing like it was Spring. One Black Phoebe was also a nice surprise.
