Guajome Field Trip

Twenty-four souls decided early this morning that the weather would not be too bad for a birdwalk, and they were right. We were joined by two visitors: one from New Jersey and the other from Virginia. Despite a couple of brief showers, we stayed dry. A final count of fifty-one species was a darn good number for this cold overcast day. We recorded the first ebird sighting for Guajome of the lark sparrow and the blue-gray gnatcacher. Although we had Sixty species last year at this time, it included seven species not usually found at Guajome.
