Subject: [southbaybirds] Swamp Sparrow on Guadalupe River trail
I birded the Guadalupe River trail north of Blossom Hill Rd this
morning. I came across a quiet HOUSE WREN while looking at LINCOLN'S
SPARROWS. I walked down the gravel spur trail and found a SWAMP SPARROW
out in the open. At first I thought it was a Lincoln's Sparrow with a
very white throat. I came back later with Karen Burnson and got the
diagnostic field marks while Karen photographed this skulking bird. It
had a rufous crown and wings, gray face, dark eye line, white throat
with dark lateral throat lines.

North of the drainage a WHITE THROATED SPARROW was found in a tree.
Roadwork is being done in the area so we parked behind Pier 1. Access to
the trail is at Blossom Hill Rd and Blossom River Drive.
Karen's photos are here.
