Big Morongo Field Trip Results

Hi Everyone,

I think it was the threat of inclement weather and the driving distance, that only nine birders participated in yesterday’s, April 26, field trip at Big Morongo Canyon Preserve.  The morning was sunny and cool, but the winds picked up as we were finishing up the walk. We all had a great time and we found 50 bird species. Six species were found by Ryan Andrews and Lori after lunch while hiking a different trail. I think the impressive Hermit Warbler, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, and the beautiful Tanagers were the birds of the day.
