Went out in between showers today and saw some really nice birds!
10/16/09 -- 9:00-9:30 -- Roger Sherman School Marsh and Field  
Highlights-
1 Lincoln's Sparrow

10/16/09 -- 3:15-4:30 -- Ash Creek, Fairfield Highlights-
10 Laughing Gulls
1 Belted Kingfisher
1 Sharp-shinned Hawk
2 Black-crowned Night-Heron (1 adult)
1 Great Egret
2 White-crowned Sparrow (1 adult-1 juv)
2 Field Sparrow (One gave exceptional looks while the other gave  
fleeting glimpses)
2 Lincoln's Sparrow
15 "Myrtle" Warblers
3 American Black Duck

There were terrific sparrow numbers at Ash Creek with a sharp decline  
at Sherman. 2 Seemed to be the magic number with the sparrow  
highlights at Ash Creek!
