Mid-morning I saw the Swamp Sparrow in the marsh north of Big
From Hwy 1, turn east and down the hill on N Big River Rd. Turn
east at the bottom of the hill. Park across from the row of large
boulders lining the road.
The bird was in a slightly different spot from where Matthew saw
it. From the start of the rock row (west end), walk west about
20-25 meters. The sparrow was near a single cattail that still
is completely covered in brown fuzz. The bird popped up from
the reeds and flew both to a coyote bush and back to one of the
small trees. Toby had arrived to see it fly back to the small
tree and perch in the open.
Also, there was an adult Snow Goose in a field near mile post
66.50 on the east side of Hwy 1, just south of Little Valley Rd.
