CHIPPING SPARROWS stuck around in the Sparrowbowl, whereas Klemens Gasser reported over 100 along the western fringes of the Long Meadow , between Bandshell and North
of BBQ area of Picnic House. Among them on my observation were WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS when I saw them with my smaller flock of 35 .Nothing else unusual though its tough to ascertain when the small sparrows are hunkered deep in the grasses.
In addition to other notable sightings, RING-NECKED DUCKS and a BRANT were seen on Prospect lake. Observers were Rob Bate & Klemens
