Comments:
Four other insane people showed up. We were also joined for a bit by Mike Kerwin, who prior to our arrival at his usual station had seen an unidentified accipter. Prior to walks start, the leader had briefly ventured down the trail and spotted an aberrant sparrow, with largely white head. His best guess is it was a Song Sparrow. It disappeared before he could run back for the camera, and it was not relocated on the walk. Presumed leucistic Song Sparrow.
