Desert View GCSP etc
The Golden-crowned Sparrow that I originally reported in my yard in mid-November was present until Jan 8. It disappeared for a month and a half, and reappeared in a snowstorm on 23 Feb. It has been present daily since then.

For a week or so, I had been seeing roadrunner tracks in the neighborhood, and I finally saw the bird yesterday, 2 March 2018. Winter records on the South Rim are not unheard of, but it is always fun to see a roadrunner when there's snow on the ground.

Crossbills have thinned out, but I did hear a small flock today that did not sound like type 2s.
