Sparrows and Open Country with Tony Beck

May 24, 2012 7:30 am

This was my third visit to this productive area behind the airport in a week.  This time we concentrated almost exclusively on the sparrows.  We also ventured across the other side of Bowesville road, then drove to Mer Bleue to find Swamp and Lincoln's sparrows.

Peter and I arrived ahead of the others.  We saw the Brown Thrasher and heard several other birds while waiting.  We were joined by Heather, Tony, Nina, Alex, Helena and several others including a young photographer names Hakhan.
