Tweets – It was colder than we expected this morning (36-43 degrees), but it was neither rainy nor blowy. Just a thin overcast most of the morning that kept things cold and not very spring-like. It was fairly birdy and we did pretty well spotting far-away birds.

a.. Band-tailed Pigeon – I spotted two flying away from the Rowing Club dock – First of Year (FOY)
b.. Rufous Hummingbird – 1 near East Footbridge, one at Rowing Club (FOY for the survey; I had one on Monday)
c.. California Gull – 1 with other gulls on grass/gravel parking lot
d.. Sharp-shinned Hawk – one south of the East Meadow; first in 7 weeks
e.. Barn Owl – 1 seen from the Viewing Mound not long before sunrise
f.. Pileated Woodpecker – Seen twice
g.. Cedar Waxwing – small flock north of Rowing Club
h.. Savannah Sparrow – 1 singing in East Meadow (FOY)
i.. Yellow-rumped Warbler – Many (20+), all “Audubon’s” among those seen well enough for ID
j.. Townsend’s Warbler – One west of mansion
Misses included Short-billed Gull, Cooper’s Hawk, Belted Kingfisher, Northern Shrike (seen Monday and Tuesday though), and American Goldfinch.

Disappointingly, we didn’t have a Say’s Phoebe (seen last Sunday) or Mountain Bluebird (seen Tuesday).

Still, we found 67 species, the first week of 2022 with 60+ species.
