Comments:
Matt Garvey and I teamed up for Cumbies birding today, following by Chili Heads barb-b-que. Matt was in full form with dog and child in tow and we were able to divide and conquer at our two locations, findig a nice selection of birds with an especailly wide variety of sparrow (we "missed" Fox, Clay-colored, and Lincoln's). Nice weather and a great day of birding. WEATHER: OVercast, calm, 45-50 F. Later becoming heavier overcast with rain starting around 14:00.
