Guajome Bird Walk Trip Report

The day started out brisk but soon everyone pulled off their jackets for the gorgeous warm morning it turned out to be. Twenty-eight birders in a leisurely and languishing manner allowed lots of time to view all of the 52 species we observed. This included the late entrant of the quail that John Sanderson swears he heard as he left the grounds. Numbers are identical to our Feb 7 walk last year and two shy of our July count last in 2019.

Our count of SIX California Thrashers was remarkable. Even one has been hard to find lately. Must be that time of year! The roadrunner is also always fun to see. Both gnatcatcher species put in an appearance, which is also noteworthy.

Until next time, flyin high,
Doug Walkley
