A nice fall day today, with the rain holding off and fun birding along the way. Brian, Sharon & I filled in for a traveling Michael, and though nothing rare showed up we had a good day.
Wilson's Snipe - several heard pre-dawn over east meadow
Turkey Vulture - one at Rowing Club
Northern Harirer - 1 over east meadow
Barn Owl - one heard at 5:00 at windmill, one seen in east meadow an hour later
Eurasian Collared-Dove - 1 in trees by concert area
Peregrine Falcon - one soaring over mansion area
American Pipit - many fly-overs, but none on ground to study - maybe 15 + total
American Robin - dozens in small flocks throughout the day flying by
Pacific Wren - 2, one of them very cooperative for good looks
Yellow-rumped Warbler [Audubon’s] - only warbler of the day!
Golden-crowned Sparrows are back in decent #s
Western Meadowlark - 3 in east meadow
Mammal highlights included bats before dawn and 3 River Otters in the slough, attempting to catch some Mallards.
For the day, about 58 species
