Gomes Park (11/6) - Eastern Phoebe, Swamp Sparrows, N Red Bishop

Jerry Ting

A few great sightings by me, Vicki R. and Gail W. this (11/6/2018) afternoon between 4:00 - 5:30pm at the west end of Gomes Park (37.550668, -121.954726) in Fremont including:
- Eastern Phoebe in fresh fall plumage see perched on the fence and top of the tree across the creek.
- The continuing adult Swamp Sparrow (found by Bill Chen on 11/3).
- The continuing winter female Northern Red Bishop (also found by Bill Chen on 11/5).

Vicki R. and I both saw another Swamp Sparrow about 50 yards east of the gate while Gail West was photographing the other adult near the gate at the same time. We also had a possible Red-naped x Red-breasted Sapsucker hybrid in the tree about 45 yards east of the gate.
