Spent some time birding at Quinta Mazatlan this morning and had some 
interesting, if not unusual sightings. An adult Swainson's Hawk has been 
hanging around the park for a couple weeks now (really got some Green Parakeets 
to panic), and a Bewick's Wren (not a typical visitor at QM) is staying around 
as well. Orchard Orioles, and a Hooded Oriole exploring a palm on the road in. 
At our ampitheater feeder, I saw an Olive Sparrow show some agression to a 
House Sparrow (you tell 'em, Olive Sparrow!).
