Hi Tweets

Michael was away to Albuquerque, so Matt, Sharon and I substituted for him.
It was a very pleasant day, cool to start and warming nicely at the close.
Light to no winds today, singing has really dropped off, but there was lots
of calling.

65 species today - a very nice day for August

The highlights today were:

Western Screech Owl - seen and heard early (5 a.m.) on river trail

Red-shouldered Hawk - relocated today early on regular walk - we did a major
break of route to track it down and get confirming looks - immature bird

Notable today:

Yellow Warbler singing

Black-throated Gray Warbler

Wood Duck

Common Merganser

Hooded Merganser

Spotted Sandpiper - juvenile

Green Herons - three

Red-winged Blackbirds - first in some weeks

Northern Rough-winged Swallows

Cliff Swallow

Tree Swallow - 1

Violet-green Swallow
