This is the Georgia Rare Bird Alert for Saturday night, October 21,
2000, Jeff Sewell reporting. This is an update to a report made earlier
in the night.
Highlights of this report: a FRANKLIN'S GULL has been found again at
South Beach Jekyll I; LINCOLN'S SPARROWS in two locations; a SNOW GOOSE;
GRASSHOPPER SPARROW, VESPER SPARROW and WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW in the
Atlanta area; and several species of warblers from the Buford Fish
Earl Horn reported that he found a first winter FRANKLIN'S GULL at South
Beach Jekyll I. late this afternoon. A first winter bird was reported
from here about two weeks ago, so perhaps this is the same bird and it
may be staying around.
Earl also found a LINCOLN'S SPARROW in Spalding Co.
No CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS or HENSLOW'S SPARROWS were re-found today at
the Cochran Shoals Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation
Area, despite an extensive search of the field near the restrooms for
the past two days. Five CEDAR WAXWINGS were observed by Jeff Sewell.
Bob Zaremba and Rusty Trump reported GRASSHOPPER SPARROW, VESPER
SPARROW, WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW and six other common sparrow species from
the Abbott's Bridge Unit of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area.
The LINCOLN'S SPARROW found yesterday by Rusty was not located today.
This Unit is located off of GA 120 between Duluth and Alpharetta. From
the intersection of GA 120 (Abbott's Bridge Rd.) and Peachtree
Industrial, there is a dirt road and a sign for the Abbott's Bridge Unit
off to the left just before you get to the river. The birds were near
the soccer field. The whole grassy area here was good for sparrows.
The LINCOLN'S SPARROW was located once again by Bob Zaremba, Rusty Trump
and others at the Buford Fish Hatchery. This bird has been here for
about a week. The Hatchery is located off of GA 20 in Forsyth Co. just
west of the Chattahoochee River. Look for the Chattahoochee River Club
subdivision (Riverview Drive) on the north side of GA 20. Drive into
the subdivision and look for the sign to the Hatchery. Just as you
enter the Hatchery on the left, there is a tree line that has hosted a
little flock of warblers, including CAPE MAY WARBLER, BLACK-THROATED
BLUE WARBLER, TENNESSEE WARBLER, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, MAGNOLIA
WARBLER, BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER, and off-and-on, a NASHVILLE
[No details of the SNOW GOOSE were provided on the tape.]
This concludes the current edition of the Georgia Rare Bird Alert.
