Prospect BBC walk highlight; +1 report

From Bobbi, on the Prospect Walk "Leaders Choice" led by Sandy Paci

Highlight being the continuing SORA  at the Peninsula phragmite marsh ( see previous posts where and map) and VESPER SPARROW at the "Sparrowbowl " this afternoon . The latter location is the lawn vale between the Tennis and Picnic mansions. See Bobbi's note and Vesper Sparrow photo below (bird list pending)

Hi Peter,

we had an awesome time on Sandy's walk today.  Klemens and Kathy, our two expert rail finders attended and Chellie is back visiting for a week from TN and joined as well.

It's likely Sandy or Chellie got better pictures of the Vesper than i did, but here's my best shot.

Sandy sending list under separate cover.
