Sarah Swanson, Audrey Addison, and I found a fine flock of sparrows while searching for Cattle Egrets on Boquist Road yesterday. Most notable in the flock was a HARRIS'S SPARROW in the company of GOLDEN-CROWNED and WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS. We also had a great view of a SWAMP SPARROW among the many SONG SPARROWS. We encountered the flock along fencelines on both sides of the Boquist Road, just north of the old bridge crossing a slough. We had to approach from the north because the road was flooded south of the bridge.
By the way, we found the two CATTLE EGRETS later in the day off of Old Latimer Road.
