Spent the morning at Mt Auburn. At first it was pretty quiet then ran into
Bob Stymiest who helped with locating the Screech Owls. After Bob had to
leave I headed over toward Willow Pond where I came across a very large
flock of sparrows up from the pond across the first roadway to the east by
a large yew. The group consisted of mostly Juncos, with a few others mixed
in including 4 Chipping Sparrows and the Clay-Colored Sparrow. After an
adult Red-Tail came by and took a swipe at the sparrows they scattered.
After some time I was able to relocate the Clay-Colored west of Willow
Pond. Also west of WIllow were an immature Sapsucker and a Ruby-Crowned
Kinglet. On the way back to the car a mixed species flock at the beginning
of the Dry Dell included a Pine Warbler.
