Brewer Sparrow in Ventura County.

I note a query made in the July number of THE CONDOR regarding the nesting of the Brewer Sparrow (Spizella breweri) west of the Sierra Nevada, and I submit the following from personal observation.

The first set was taken from a silk oak tree on May 15, 1908, and contained three eggs. This set is still in my possession. The second set was taken from an apricot tree on May 17, 1909, and contained four eggs. This set is now in the possession of Mr. C. W. Crandall of New York.
