I have to apologize for the late report. On Sunday afternoon (Nov 18), I was following up on the report of the Harris's Sparrow at the Fill. No success with that, but shortly after I arrived, I saw a sparrow in a small flock of juncos that I suspected was an American Tree Sparrow. I got a few bad photos before it disappeared behind a clump of grass and then flushed as some pedestrians passed by. I wrote it off as a poorly seen immature White-crowned Sparrow after I failed to refind it despite looking through quite a few juncos and White-crowneds (the image on the back of my camera was too small to discern anything at the time). I finally remembered to look at the photos on a large screen just now, and there it was - American Tree Sparrow. So, again, sorry for waiting until now to report it.

It was west of the intersection of Wahkiakum Lane and Franklin Road, just north of Shoveler Pond and then flushed towards Central Pond.
