We originally entered this into the database as Mountain Chickadee. If there had been a Mountain Chickadee at Palo Alto Duck Pond on this date, we would have heard more of a splash from the birding community. We believe it must have been Chestnut-backed Chickadee instead.

Sturnidae (Starlings)
Emberizidae (Buntings and New World Sparrows)
Icteridae (Troupials and Allies)
Fringillidae (Siskins, Crossbills, and Allies)
