Ammodramous sp @ Hunters Point

Alan Hopkins

This evening at about 5pm I saw a small sparrow as it flew up from the drainage ditch on the Hunter’s Point Shipyard that appeared to be a Ammodramous sparrow. The bird had a flat head and strongly notched tail. The face showed a cheek patch with some yellowish on the face. The bird flew to a bush across a cyclone fence unfortunately it was far away and facing away in ¾ light. I watched it for about a minute. Eventually it flew off to the south. Earler at noon there was a Pacific-slope Flycatcher and Western Tanager a Pointview Park. The ditch is off limits but you can view it through the fence at the end of Donahue St. (don’t expect the bird to be there)
