Date: 10/4/19 6:58 pm From: Ralph Browning <sjs96...> Subject: [RV Birds] Little Bunting at Agate Reservoir flats I have oft thought that the bushes in the flats via Medco Rd might someday offer up a waif. The bunting bush is marked with a streamer of orange flagging tape. As far as I know, there really isn't anything marked like a Little Bunting. The bunting popped up while spishing for a Chipping Sparrow and something else that was calling somewhat wren-like. Good view. Judging from its rusty auricular region and central crown and white eye-ring, but whitish throat, the bunting was an immature. Attempts to relocate the bunting (or the unknown caller for that matter) were unsuccessful, ergo no photo finish.
Also at least 4 Violet-green Swallows among numerous Tree Swallows, pipits galore, and Red-necked Grebe on the water.
