I spent about an hour at Second Marsh and Cool Hollow today looking for the Harris's Sparrow but was unsuccessful. It is a huge area and the bird could very likely still be around though. Lots of White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows for company. Saw a Lincoln's sparrow, 2 Least Flycatchers, 1 Yellow-throated Vireo, Cedar Waxwing, Grey Catbird, gnatcatchers, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Warbling Vireo, and several warblers in Cool Hollow.
At Second Marsh, two adult Little Gulls entertained and several Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, 1 Black-bellied Plover, 1 Wilson's Phalarope and several Dunlin were on the flats.
Both places can be reached by exiting 401 at Bloor St and heading south to Wentworth then left to the GM building. Cool follow is located south of the building and the marsh is west. Enter by the footpath at the SW corner of the parking lot.
