(tan-striped) white-throated sparrow in Butte Co.
- Hello Birders,
My good friend R.J. Bogiatto sent me this message today and I am posting his sighting
here. Apparently he re-found the bird that Scott Huber reported on 9/27 from the same
location and very likely the same individual. See Scott's post for specific directions to the
Llano Seco Unit of the Sac River NWR.
I observed a tan-striped morph white-throated sparrow at the Llano Seco Unit
of the Sacramento River NWR at 1715h. The bird was observed on the trail
between Viewing Platforms 1 and 2. More specifically, the sparrow was seen
on the trail approximately .25mi west of 7-Mile Lane near the Willow on the
corner of Unit 12, where the trail first hits the canal. The lone individual
was foraging on the ground with a mixed group of song, savannah, and
