Tweets – What’s with this weather? Cool, big rumpled puffs of clouds (rather than a real overcast), unexpected showers. Except for the plethora of baby birds, it didn’t feel much like summer today.


Green Heron Two, we think, along slough
Cooper’s Hawk Adult. First since early May
Spotted Sandpiper At least 3 below weir. Still expecting babies sometime
Barn Owl Matt saw one leave the windmill before my alarm went off
BLACK SWIFT At least a dozen, giving us great, close looks
Vaux’ Swift Almost as many as Blacks
Pac.-slope Flycatcher One heard at Rowing Club pond
N. R.-winged Swallow 1-2 over slough above weir
Orange-cr. Warbler Saw a couple, heard a couple more. Usually rare this time of year
Y.-rumped Warbler One heard near mansion
Black-thr. Gray Warbler One heard at south end of Dog Meadow, then across the slough

Baby birds were noted for the following species: Canada Goose, Wood Duck, Mallard, ?Common Merganser?, Great Blue Heron, Black-capped Chickadee, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, American Robin, Common Yellowthroat, Spotted Towhee, Savannah Sparrow, Song Sparrow (MANY), and Dark-eyed Junco. There may have been other species where we couldn’t tell the age of the birds.

For the day, 64 species.
