Tweets – there were over 20 birders out today, with about a dozen of them taking advantage of a Thursday coinciding with a holiday. Surprisingly, there weren’t a lot of other park users about, despite the fairly nice weather. It was about 60 degrees with a thin, high overcast, so really quite nice.

Highlights:

Wood Duck Female with 5 small ducklings, plus a pair
Hooded Merganser “Teenager” at the Rowing Club pond
Great Blue Heron Still some occupied nests, juvies along slough too
Sharp-shinned Hawk Juvenile cruised past Lake Platform
CASPIAN TERN 5 flew north at 5:45, another at lake
Barn Owl Matt had one at the windmill at 4:15 am
Vaux’s Swift ~10. Flew notably low and close to us
R.-br. Sapsucker Adult and 2 fledglings near mansion
Pileated Woodpecker 1 came in to mansion area
Willow Flycatcher A dozen plus singing males
Purple Martin Male sat atop gourd nest crossbar
Bullock’s Oriole Adult male and two possible juvies
Pine Siskin One across from weir – only occasionally seen in summer

For the day, 58 species. The CASPIAN TERNS were new for the year list.
