This morning LeConte's Sparrows were very cooperative at the South Farm R-1
Lake.  So cooperative that several allowed scope views!  They were sitting
on the wire fence on the east side of the parking lot - bouncing back and
forth between that the tall grass behind the fence.  This area also had
numerous Savannah Sparrows,  Sedge Wrens and a Marsh Wren.  Two Palm
Warblers were in a tree line on the eastern boundary of that grass field.
Two Osprey were working the lake.

In the afternoon, Eagle Bluffs at the Junction House had large flocks of
Tree and Barn Swallows prompting us to carefully close car doors and  roll
up windows for fear they might fly into the car!  Had great looks at a
Merlin while he dined on a frog.  Lots of Sora being flushed in Pool 10
along with Snipe.  Low numbers of Mallard, BW Teal and American Coots.  Pied
Billed Grebes in almost every pool.  Did not re-locate the Ibis that has
been seen off and on all week (Tim James reported seeing it yesterday)

Ran into Mike Warnock who reported flushing an American Bittern and seeing
Lark, Savannah, and Vesper Sparrows but no one saw our sought after
Nelson's.
