Guajome Park Bird Walk Trip Report

A beautiful day as 22 PAS birders, age nine to ??? set out canvas Guajome Park. This trip included our two youthful birding experts whom the club is sponsoring to the Summer birding camp this summer in Colorado. With such talent we were locatged 57 species. Of particular interest were both the Red-naped Sapsucker and the Red-breasted Sapsucker. Seeing them so close together gave each of us a clear understanding of their distiguishing difference. The Allan’s Hummingbird sat close, long, and proud allowing us to see clearly its bill that curves down slightly at the end, as well to view all of its rufous coloration shining in the sun. We all enjoyed picking out the several Black-crowned Night-Herons hiding in the rushes all around the lake.

All in all a good time. We, of course, missed Dave Mathis, who always does an excellent job of leading this out, but I did enjoy filling in. Here is the list:
