    Comments: Continuing individual previously reported by Jim Roberts. Light orange face and upper breast, gray crown with dark stripes stretching from bill and over the top of the head, streaks on breast and flanks, white belly, and distinctive white streaks on back, bill pale and grayish. Spotted initially by Max Leibowitz at 10:45 a.m., and we observed the bird until 11:08 a.m., when a Cooper's Hawk flew in and the sparrow dove deep into the scrub. We saw the bird north of the observation platform, near the storm drain outlet. It perched in the tall dry brush, gradually moving higher until it came out in full view. That's when the hawk arrived, but not soon enough to grab Mr. Nelson. Photos.
