Lincoln's Sparrow

I got a late start yesterday morning (it was a long week at work after having been off for over two) so I decided to stay nearby and check out TRNWR. I don't get there very often anymore and I thought it might be nice to see if I could see the Emperor Goose and check it off for 2012.
I dipped on the goose, but I did see a couple of new refuge birds for me; a Lincoln's Sparrow and three Fox Sparrows. All were along the beginning of the trail before the small ponds.
In the young Oak trees planted just after the ponds were a few Western Bluebirds and in the distance from the observation deck was an Eurasian Wigeon.
It's fun being able to check off all the birds at the beginning of a new year. It can get pretty slow towards the end of a year. :-)

  1. Nice catch - I've only seen a Lincoln once and it was at TRNWR. Need to get back over there - it's a fun place to walk around. Happy new year!
