I spent a couple of hours at Rentenaar Rd this morning while others got their lifer Common Eider somewhere else …
This White-throated Sparrow (above) was very cooperative.
The Clay-colored Sparrow (above) only put in a brief appearance. It is not a brightly marked bird, so I had to convince myself that it wasn’t a Brewer’s, but the bill-size, lack of streaking on the neck and lack of a full white eye-ring sealed the deal for me.
The Harris’s Sparrow (below) was there, but played hard to get for a picture.
I also heard both Sora and Virginia Rail.
