My husband Randy Robinson found an American Tree Sparrow yesterday
(Sunday Nov 25) at the Skagit Game Range (aka Wylie Slough, Skagit
Wildlife Area Headquarters Unit, and no doubt several other names).

You can go to this link (below) to find the exact location of the sighting:

It was in shrubs and small trees on your right as you walk along the
dike out towards the bay.

Also, I've posted six pictures that I took in the Skagit yesterday (most
at Wylie Slough), including the American Tree Sparrow at:
