Fwd: [slocobirding] Cassin's Sparrow - Carrizo Plain
- The Cassin's Sparrow was seen again today on the Carrizo Plain in San Luis
In a message dated 5/14/2008 9:47:09 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time,
This morning from 11 to 11:45, the CASSIN'S SPARROW made 3 of its skylarking
flights. At the end of the second flight, it landed on top of a bush about
25 feet from me and posed for almost a minute, giving me excellent views from
all angles. The other two times, it would land down in the vegetation and
stayed hidden between flights.
A SAGE SPARROW was up and singing for the entire 45 minutes I was there.
Directions to "there" - Hwy 58 east off of 101. Turn south on Soda Lake Rd.
Go east on Belmont Trail. At about 2 miles, turn south on Chubback Rd. Park
at the intersection of Chubback Rd. and Chula Vista Rd. The bird was almost
due west of the intersection. All of the roads have signs.
