At Elm Creek Park Reserve this morning Maureen and I walked from Eastman 
Nature Center north on the paved bike trail across Elm Creek Road to 
where Diamond Creek passes under the bike trail.  Notables:

Common Redpolls - 9 - at the boardwalk that is about a 0.4 mi. walk 
north of Elm Creek Road
Fox Sparrow - 1 - good look at it near where 121st Ave would intersect 
the bike trail if it went that far east (about 1 mi. farther up the bike 
trail from the boardwalk)
Northern Shrike - 1 - seen and heard singing in the same area as the fox
