Sparrows Galore

We received a most gracious invitation to visit the Flying W Ranch near Hillsboro. The invitation was made because Caracaras are believed to be nesting on the ranch. We were able to spot what we believe to be two older nests and will return in the Spring to see if these will be reused. We also sighted a Caracara very close to the first nest.

This proved to be a very “sparrowy” place. We sighted Harris’s, White Crowned, Song, Lincoln’s, Field, Savannah, and Vesper Sparrows. Brush piles and fence lines offered a good days viewing. The weather and lighting made photographing difficult, but not impossible.
