Drought and Sage Sparrows

Sparrow, Lark1

We have had roughly 2.6 inches of rain since October 1 of last year (the start of the water year).  Things are really dry and it is a miserable year for wildflowers, hardly anything is blooming in the hills.

Sage Sparrows make appearances in our yard in Hillsboro some years.  This is one of those years, they have been about for a few days but will soon be gone.  The photo above is from May 14.
