Subject: [obol] Linn County Lark Sparrow
Maureen Leong-Kee, Thomas Gilg and I spent a long, full day birding
numerous stops up and down the eastern part of Linn County. Our most
notable bird was a Lark Sparrow at Lava Lake Sno-Park. It looks like its
one of only a handful of records for Linn County, and the first since 1998
(at least in eBird). Interesting that it should coincide with the bird
recently found at Bald Hill Farm.

The Lava Lake Lark Sparrow was strutting around like it owned the place -
hopefully it sticks around for anyone interested in tracking it down.
Directions are posted in our checklist:

Happy Birding,
