Possible Black-chinned Sparrow at Sibley


Douglas Vaughan
 

On a Mothers’ Day hike at Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve, my wife got a brief but fairly good look at a bird she believes was a Black-chinned Sparrow. I did not get my binoculars on it, nor did we hear it sing. Worth a look if you’re in the area. Before it flew to the south, the bird was in the stand of Queen Anne’s Lace(?) around the paved switchbacks near the top of Quarry Road. This species was seen here just about a year ago.
