The bird continued in the same location yesterday just past the gift shop near the feeders.

Cheers,

So sorry it took me so long to upload my shot from yesterday, but here he is! Some tips for seeing this bird: Even though it is busy, he is there. He tends to hide in the brambles to the left of the wooden bridge, in with the Golden-crowned Sparrows. He tends to show himself for a few moments, before ducking down the bank where you can't see him. Patience to get a nice shot is the key!

The White-throated sparrow was still there today. Patience ( as Hawker said) is needed. It didn't show itself for about 45 minutes and then only a brief glimpse. It took close to 2 hours to get a couple decent shots

Also, a few other random shots fro Reifel today

Amanda Lahaie et al. had a WTSP at Alaksen today. This may be the same bird from Reifel.

The Reifel bird was seen yesterday by the feeders.
