Fwd: clay-colored sparrow

i was amused to see the Clay-colored Sparrow for several minutes this morning at around 8am. the tenacious little bird was on the peninsula lawn with his two Chipping Sparrow cohorts and 30 or more off-leash dogs. the sparrows didn't seem to mind the commotion, and were feeding near one of the netted-in saplings which they flew to when a dog or person came too close.
