The TROPICAL KINGBIRD was along Three Crabs Road today on the water side
just beyond mailbox 710 working the field area containing two sheep. It
landed on the wooden fence post near the round house, on metal fence posts
and in the trees on the right side of the field. It was also on the power
lines .2 miles beyond this location.

The HARRIS'S SPARROW was present in the yard at 770. I knocked on the door
and the gentleman said I was welcome to sit in the chairs he had set out
and wait for the bird. He made me feel most welcome and said he needs to
put out a sign that birders are welcome to come into the yard and wait for
the sparrow. I saw it in four locations and had great looks at the bird as
it fed on the ground and also on a wooden feeder.

A COOPER'S HAWK flew through the 770 yard twice and was also seen later at
the sheep field sight flying about.
