Is that the Abbotts lagoon bird? I was never able to get out/ or find it. 

I wish. I spent 3+ hours at the LCSP spot at Abbotts, downwind of a rotting cow carcass looking for the bird and never saw/heard it. It was a tough day birding. I know one person who didn't get the Marin bird until their 5th attempt.  

This was the Blufftop Coastal Park bird in HMB. A first San Mateo County record at the time.

Since I got my new camera( yesterday), I have practiced in my yard, got some better shots of song and white crowned sparrows!

Like Warblers and Woodpeckers topics I thought I would start one for Sparrows. This is a bird family I mostly ignore as I waded into birding. Then I grew to have a love hate thing with them as I learned to id them. Then I loved them! Moving from Colorado to Florida and finding there are just not as many I find I miss them. Please post your sparrow photo here as a salute to sparrows. Please id your photo and give at least the State. If there is already a topic for this let know. I will start with my favorite sparrow as it was the easiest to learn to id and it is a good looking sparrow. Lark Sparrow Colorado

@TexasCobra We do have a pretty big ego don't we?

We were talking to a guy whose son was a missionary in Australasia. I don't remember where they where from(Montana?) but they were not living is Texas yet. Any way when he got there people would ask him where he was from and he would tell the what state, but when he told them they didn't believe him at first they told him that there where only Texans and Americans.  He said some people where so definite he had to get his phone out and show them!

If I make the comment that the other day I saw that California was helping the great white sharks, make up for me making a jab at it?
