The Brewer Sparrow in Glenn County, California
Records of the Brewer Sparrow (Spizella breweri) from the San Joaquin Valley and from the vicinity of Eagle Lake are fairly common, but I have been unable to find any published record of this bird having recently been reported from any place in the Sacramento Valley. On February 27, 1937, a student of mine collected a Brewer Sparrow near a chicken yard at Orland, California. The bird was with a flock of Gambel Sparrows at the time. The skin was donated to the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, where it is recorded under the accession number 5517, and bird department number 73158.
