Chipping Sparrow in Castro Valley

Emily Serkin

Hi Birders.
Today on a walk in my neighborhood I saw a Chipping Sparrow in breeding plumage, in a riparian corridor, in an open space area between Lake Chabot Rd./Fairmont Dr. and Crest Ave.  Probably just migrating through.
Also of note for this area was a Downy Woodpecker.
Good birding,
