Subject: Re: [MDBirding] Old record for Clay-colored Sparrow - location????
Hi Tony:

It's MD/DCRC accession #: MD/1997-232.
Dates: 1/5 to 2/6 1978; [AB reports end date as 02/15; MB first-hand
report says end was before 02/07.]
Documentation: MB 34(4):184. AB 32(3):335. AB citation includes a R
Rowlett photograph. Four color slides by R Rowlett.
Location: Churchville, MD. Comments: Bird identified by two high
school students: Dan Vest and Paul Ford, at the Ford's feeder.

Old Clay-colored Sparrow reports, like this, are reviewable, but are
very low on our committee backlog/priority list.

Hope that helps ...
