This morning, Patti DiLuzio -in my College of Marin birding class, spotted a Clay-colored Sparrow.
This bird was feeding in a fennel patch with a small flock of yellow warblers near the Kentfield Campus.
From lot 13, or "the free lot" off of College Avenue by the Physical Education Department, we walked down a little path along the creek (stay on the left side of the creek) until it reached the larger, Corte Madera Creek. There are sports fields on the left side of the path. As you reach Corte Madera Creek, there is a large patch of fennel. There was a small flock of yellow warblers working this fennel patch and a Clay-colored Sparrow was hanging out with them. It seemed to prefer being in the chainlink fence along the side of the ball fields.
