I also saw the Harris's Sparrow at 9:30 thanks to Henry Trombley
and Hank Keastner who pointed it out to me just as I arrived. A
To clarify something from yesterday, before I got there someone had
talked to the homeowner at the location, and after hearing an
explanation as to why people were there, she said it was alright to
look at her bird feeders from the road.
Also, an eBird hotspot named "Harris's Sparrow spot--Basin Harbor Rd"
has been created. Using this hotspot will allow sightings of the bird
to be aggregated into one list, and because there is a delay in how
rare birds show up in eBird outputs, it can be used to help people find
the location. We would appreciate it very much for anyone submitting
the bird to eBird to use this hotspot.
