The Lark Sparrow continues at Devens 1/27

I was fortunate to veiw (and hear) the Lark Sparrow, initially found by Kevin Bourinot at Devens, this morning. After checking a few feeders in the neighborhood, I heard an odd sparrow like song, that sounded like it might some distance away. It turned out the Lark Sparrow was singing a muffled and incomplete version of its song, not 10 feet away in a forsithia right in front of me ! I was able to digi-bin a few shots.............
