Rufous-crowned Sparrows - Black Diamond Mines Regional Park, Antioch - 1/30

Paul Schorr

At 1:15 today Nancy and I located a pair of Rufous-crowned Sparrows along the entrance road to BDMRP. The birds were seen in California Sagebrush shrubs along the steep west side of the entrance road about 200 feet from where the road makes a sharp left turn up a steep incline where the speed is posted at 15 mph. There isn’t available parking along the road, but there are some wide spots above the steep incline.

Good birding,
