First of Spring ,to my knowledge in Mono County, Black-throated Sparrows (numerous) on the alluvial fan areas between White Mountain Estates and the base of the White Mountains. This is the third year that these sparrows have showed up significantly earlier than for instance published in Gaines where extreme early dates of arrival are May. During the past couple years the birds have stayed and nested in the fields adjacent to White Mountain Estates through the summer and leaving in Fall.
