Daley Ranch Field Trip Results

Hi Everyone,

This morning, Saturday November 4, ten birders hiked around Daley Ranch in the hills above Escondido.

We had a very enjoyable walk with excellent weather and a really fun group of birders. We found 40 bird species.

Besides the birds we found, we were happy to see that all of the ponds are full of water! Pretty impressive,
and the result of last year’s heavy rainfall.

Several surprises today: a flyover flock of American White Pelicans, the Black-crowned Night-Heron, the
Sharp-shinned Hawk, and the real close-up looks at a Golden-crowned Sparrow.
