Another big sparrow day.  This time, everywhere I went White-throated & Juncos were the most numerous.  I saw a single Vesper by Ballfield 7.  Also 1 White-crowned near the Upper Pool meadow.
Raptors were also present, I saw Kestrel, Merlin, Peregrine, & Red-tailed.
Warblers, still present in very low numbers.  The big surprise was 1 male Redstart near the Maryland Monument while I was looking for the OCWA (no luck!!!). The others were: Yellowthroat, Palm & Myrtle.
