On Sunday 10/14 I had a dull Palm Warbler at the picnic areaof the
Painted Hills Unit, John Day Fossil Beds (Wheeler).Great little spot.
Also visited the Sheep Rock Unit Sun, and Smith Rock S.P. on Mon.
Nothing else unusual- lots of Robins and Yellow-rumps, & just after
dawn a tight flock of 20 Golden-crownedSparrows dropped onto the small
lawn adjacent to the trailbridge at Smith Rock. Townsend's Solitaires
for someone mostly tied to the coast it was enjoyable toexperience a
nearly constant Solitaire serenade while hiking in October.
