Forwarding this message from yesterday morning.  At least one person
searched the area for this bird yesterday, but did not see the bird in the
ensuing snowstorm.  This is the third Harris’s Sparrow in Albany County
since October 2015.

Hi Julie,

Sara and I had a very exciting discovery today—a Harris’s Sparrow!  Sara
took these photos.  We found it on our walk around Buckingham Pond which is
right next to Stonehenge Gardens where we live. It was associating with 3
White-throated Sparrows.  It was off the trail that circles the pond at the
west end of Raft Street (at this point the trail runs parallel to Raft
Street on the south side of the pond).  It was in a semi-open area on the
pond side of the trail where the trail makes a 90 degree turn.  The easiest
way to reach this location is to park at the playground on Berkshire Blvd.
and walk the trail to the spot.

Later in the morning I returned to the area where we saw the bird and
scattered some millet. We checked the spot one more time later in the
afternoon but saw no birds at the seed.

Sara and I don’t know any other birders so you can share this information
as you like.  We’ll check for the bird tomorrow.  Thanks!

Brian and Sara
