      Just returned from a week in La Mision, Baja, which is 20 minutes north of Ensenada.

      The chaparral habitat here is excellent, and RUFOUS-CR and BLACK-CH SPARROWS were in song. LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCHES were flitting about. Migrant EMPIDS were present. Atop the mesas, SAGE SPARROWS were common. Also of interest, EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVES were very common in town. There were some paler blotchy ones among them. This plumage variability has been noted elsewhere.
