Dixon Lake Field Trip Results

Hi Birders,

On Saturday December 29, sixteen birders walked around Dixon Lake and we found 46 bird species. At the start of the walk it was very cold (~40 deg.) but warmed up slightly for a comfortable hike. I think the cold weather kept a lot of the birds hunkered down. Lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers though. Best birds were the colorful male Redhead and the very cooperative Rufous-crowned Sparrow.

Here’s our species list:

American Wigeon
Northern Shoveler
Ring-necked Duck
Lesser Scaup
Ruddy Duck
Pied-billed Grebe
Eared Grebe
