Hi MObirders,
       The Harris Sparrow is still alive and well and feeding at the "seeded" log on Lake 6 at Busch. I went there not knowing which log to check out, but saw a car parked and checking out one area...yep, it was the Smiths, also looking for the Harris! We enjoyed White-Crowned, White-Throated, Song, Swamp and American Tree Sparrows for quite awhile before the beautiful Harris showed.  And, stayed and stayed. I finally left before he did. Also at Lake 6 were Bald Eagle (f.o.), Rusty Blackbird, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Killdeer (f.o.)and a Red-Tailed Hawk.  Spent so long at Lake 6, that I only had time to walk the Fallen Oak Nature Trail, there adding Red-Breasted Nuthatch, Carolina Wrens, Purple Finch, and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Watching a female Bluebird, Chickadee, and Purple Finch all bathe side by side in the "Fishless Pond," I thought perhaps they should rename it the Songbird Spa!
       Great day!!! Fantastic weather in the 70s!
  Linda Yust, Ladue, St. Louis County
