Hey everyone,

I had a limited amount of time for birding today, so I headed to my closest local patch to see what was around.  It looks like I should have headed to Mead for the Clay-Colored Sparrow. I still need that bird for Florida!  Ah well, today's walk at Leu was pleasant enough, and there were a few birds around.  I arrived at 11:15 and left just after 1:00:
