The continuing Harris's Sparrow put in an appearance yesterday ~3:15 after
about 90 minutes of searching. Shortly after I arrived a Sharp-shinned Hawk
blew through flushing all the finches and sparrows and it took a while for
them to settle down again. Mediocre photos are available at

Good birding!
