  2. Number observed: 2

    Details: Heard 2 calling from different directions as if responding to each other.

  3. Number observed: 1
  4. Number observed: 7
  5. Number observed: 1
  6. Number observed: 2
  7. Number observed: 1

    Details: Heard singing;

  8. Number observed: 67

    Details: Exact count of the ones that flew passed me as the flock moved from the SE corner of the cemetery a little ways into the interior about halfway to the SW corner. They streamed by me in small, loosely connected groups, making them easy to count while up in the air.

  9. Number observed: 1

    Details: One heard calling.

  10. Number observed: 13

    Details: Likely an undercount. A lot of individuals and small groups of robin moving around including some groups flying into the bordering woods and at other times groups with different numbers of individuals flying out of the woods. The most I saw in sight at the same time was a flock of 11 flying by while 2 individuals were feeding in the grass. There could easily have been more than twice that many present.

  11. Number observed: 4

    Details: Two singing and 2 seen with no reddish in their plumage.

  12. Number observed: 1

    Details: One heard calling while flying overhead.

  13. Number observed: 7

    Details: *Rare. *Continuing. As I walked from the large juniper in the center of the cemetery toward the SE edge, I flushed a flock of ~15 small sparrows that I assumed was the resident chipping and clay-colored flock. These birds disappeared into the copse of oaks and pines along the SE border of the cemetery, about 50 yards in from Rt 6. I slowly worked the border of the copse for a little over half an hour before some of the Spizella flock flew out of the woods and back into the cemetery, initially landing in two bare deciduous trees about another 50 yards away. Fortunately, they stayed in these trees long enough for me to approach cautiously and get good looks at 8 of them. Seven showed the chipping sparrows' gray breast, dark lores, a suggestion of a dark mustache line and some russet in their dark and light striped crowns.

Fortunately, they stayed in these trees long enough for me to approach cautiously and get good looks at 8 of them. One showed the clay-colored sparrow's buff color on its breast, gray nape, light lores, an obvious dark mustache that emphasized the dark brown auricular patch, obvious descending lateral throat stripes and no russet in its dark and light striped crown.

  16. sparrow sp.

    Number observed: 7

    Details: As I walked from the large juniper in the center of the cemetery toward the SE edge, I flushed a flock of ~15 small sparrows that I assumed was the resident chipping and clay-colored flock. These birds disappeared into the copse of oaks and pines along the border about 50 yards in from Rt 6. I was later able to identify 8 of them, leaving at least 7 likely Spizella sp unidentified.

  17. Number observed: 2

    Details: Both heard calling.
