Subject: [pen-bird] ebird reports of Bell's Sparrow from 6/2/18
Just a heads up for those who do not subscribe to eBird rare bird alerts. There were two separate reports of Bell's Sparrow in San Mateo county yesterday,  6/2/18.
One report came from the Palo Alto Summer Bird count. The bird was observed at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve  where there is
no general public access.

The second report came from Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve, which has public access. The eBird checklist describes where the bird was seen:

The fact that there were 2 separate observations, on the same day,  in our county is quite remarkable!
With 2 of the more recent previous accounts of this species, per eBird (2012 and 2007) the birds stayed for more than one day.

Good birding!
