A Harris's Sparrow has been seen sporadically at the Bend Pine Nursery since December 15th. Here are the directions on where it has been seen:
First observation was to the south west of the roundabout at the west entrance to the park (off of Purcell Rd), up the hill in the shrubs among a flock of golden crown and a few white crown sparrows. The Harris's was perched up in a shrub. The flock flushed from that location which is close to a busy Frisbee golf T. The flock flew across the road and to the north staying close to the paved walkway. I was not able to relocate the Harris's sparrow right away, but came back approximately two hours later (3:15 PM) and found it again amongst the flock, this time in the area just to the west of the paved walk between the entrance road and an intersection where an additional paved path intersection leads to the west and close to my original observation on Dec. 15.
