Daley Ranch Trip Report

Here is the list. Any corrections, etc., please email me. I had forgotten one or two from the list we had made earlier in the day. Great day for Fox Sparrows, a life bird for quite a few of the group and the Wrentit was everywhere in full view, especially at the drip. I think a count of 12 might have been low for this usually shy and retiring bird. I hope our photogs got some good pictures.

Thank you for your help in spotting and ID-ing the birds!!!

Comments:     Middle Pond was dry. No-name pond had some water. The horse 
waterer near the ranch house had many birds coming in for drinks. Evidence of 
the three-year drought was noticed through much of the area we birded. Bird 
numbers and species were limited. This was a Palomar Audubon sponsored walk. The 
purpose was not to count the totals of every species we encountered.
