Lafayette Reservoir Sparrows

Jeff Acuff

This morning I found a SWAMP SPARROW in front of the Visitor's Center at the Lafayette Reservoir.  The bird was in a mixed sparrow flock in the reeds along the edge of the pavement where the fishing dock is now closed.  This is the same location where Kai Mills found a swamp sparrow a couple of years ago and where a swamp sparrow has been seen over two recent winters.

Other birds foraging there included mostly white-crowned sparrows, but also golden-crowns, song sparrows, spotted towhees, a Bewick's wren, sooty fox sparrows and one RED FOX SPARROW.

Good Birding,
Jeff Acuff
