Arroyo Grande - Clay-colored sparrow


Mitch Siemens
 

There was one bathing in my backyard water feature yesterday at noon along with a Lincolns sparrow. 

Also a California thrasher a couple of weeks ago made a brief as a new yard bird at my house in this residential neighborhood; first one I've seen here in 18 years ! A male hooded oriole made its spring appearance today as well and a couple of white-throated swifts sailed through overhead last week.
