Hello all,

I had brief but excellent looks at a curious SWAMP SPARROW at the Philomath
Sewage ponds today. The bird was in the brambles about halfway down the
south dike (at the end of the shooting range). Of course, it refused to pop
back up once I had my camera ready. ;)

A male CINNAMON TEAL in full alternate plumage was a nice surprise -
getting just a tad late for them.

Otherwise business as usual. Full list on eBird:

Happy fall birding (and don't forget to "fall back" tomorrow morning!
