Bell's Sparrow on E Camino Cielo

John Callender
 

I visited La Cumbre Peak this morning, then stopped at several locations west of there along East Camino Cielo. My main goal was to see if I could find any Black-chinned Sparrows. I didn't hear or see any of those, but I was surprised to see a single Bell's Sparrow on the hillside just above (north) of the road nearĀ 34.5189, -119.7834. BOSBC mentions them as occurring along East Camino Cielo in the past, though apparently they've become scarcer in recent years.
