There is a continuing, or another, Orange-crowned Warbler in the TBV orchard, seen this morning in the blueberry patch. Four Vesper Sparrows were on the fence just south of the barn. There is a patch of planted grain just on the other side of the fence that they are clearly feeding in, with periodic flights back to the fence. If you are looking for Vesper Sparrow, this is a great spot - I've seen one or more in the same place every visit here since early October. Also of note, a flyover Pine Siskin (first I have had here in two years), single Lincoln's and White-crowned Sparrows, lots of Am. Pipits flying over, still plenty of Palm Warblers (mostly Yellow).
