I apologize for not being able to post this sooner.
The Lark Sparrow in Simsbury reappeared at 9:25 this morning. Loosely associating with a flock of Bluebirds; moreclosely associating with a small flock of Juncos. Very approachable (I was able to get within 35 feet); the bird was feeding ravenously on the trail. Located just before (west of) the airport runway; where the fence on the south side of the trail makes a small jog to the south.
Also a White-crowned Sparrow which, I believe, was of the gambelii (western) race; yellowish bill and pale lores.
Both birds were photographed.
