Went up to RMBS this morning to look for the Harris' Sparrow recently reported there. The WGNSS Thursday group was there looking for it but they had not seen it. I did find another good sparrow in the weeds near Heron Pond. It was a very cooperative LeContes that sat up on a weed for several minutes for great looks. This is the first time I have been able to get any decent photographs of this bird. See the links below of my photos:

There were other species during my brief couple hours up there: Trumpeter Swans, W Pelicans, Green Winged Teal, Shovelers and big rafts of Ruddy Ducks. A pair of Horned Grebes were far out in Ellis Bay. It was a good day to be at Riverlands as it was not as windy as usual.
