On Saturday at Mill Creek, I had a rail run across the corner with the platform where the Nelson’s Sparrow was found. It looked dark and I think it was a Virginia, but didn’t get a good enough look when it was there as it bailed into one of the briars and I never saw it come out and it didn’t respond to any of the calls I played.
I did find one of its footprints and it looked to be a little bigger than a quarter (photo at right). I’m not really up on my rail foot print sizes, Any idea?
On Sunday, I had the Peregrine eating something in the Osprey nest on the Swing Bridge next to Laurel Hill County Park. No sign of great corms yet. I don’t know if they’re not here yet or the Peregrine has run them off. (Thanks, Ray!)
