Black-chinned Sparrows on West Camino Cielo

Black-chinned Sparrows have returned to the southern slope on the west end of West Camino Cielo. Despite 45 degree temperatures, very high winds, and being socked in by the clouds, Linda and I managed to hear 2 singing at: (34.5360452, -120.0479870), 1 singing at (34.5333110, -120.0249540), and 2 seen at: (34.5275545, -120.0056985).

Also of note was a White-chinned Sparrow we found when we stopped to check the Giant Echium ("Pride of Madeira" ) blooms for hummingbirds at: (34.53272, -120.06386). Photo here:
