Tweets – We had a great day today, under a patchy, thin overcast that moderated the temperatures and made viewing a little less glary. We’re moving into the post-breeding season, possibly a little earlier than usual, and birds are beginning to move around.

Highlights:

Great Blue Heron Done with nesting; only TWO seen (at lake)
Green Heron Two juveniles at Rowing Club pond
Spotted Sandpiper Two juveniles, still with some down, at weir
Mourning Dove One at Viewing Mound
Barn Owl TWO babies heard in windmill, 3+ birds flying meadows
Rufous Hummingbird Still 3-4, all at Pea Patch
All 5 Woodpeckers
Peregrine (?) Falcon Seen flying around, NE of mansion
Western Wood-Pewee Quite a few, very vocal (odd calls) and active
Pac.-Slope Flycatcher 1 in great mixed flock, South end of Dog Meadow
CASSIN’S VIREO In the great mixed flock. First of Year
Purple Martin Parents feeding 2 babies in gourd at lake
Y.-rumped Warbler Female feeding 3 young near park office
Bl.-thr. Gray Warbler At least 4, several sightings, part of great flock
Wilson’s Warbler One in great mixed flock, one other sighting
Lazuli Bunting Male in Dog Meadow, possibly some juvies

For the day, 66 species!
