I spotted a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW Sun afternoon at the parking lot on the
back end of Heron Pond, Riverlands MBS, St Chas Cnty.  Photo here:

There was also a male BLUE GROSBEAK in the same area.  1 TRUMPETER SWAN in
Heron Pond, 2 CASPIAN TERN working Ellis Bay.

It was a good-all over morning at Tower Grove Park:  many good birds and
good birders.

Bonus Photo Quiz

Can you name this species?  Hint:  It's a common yard bird and is in
abnormal plumage.
