June 10th Cuyamaca State Park Bird Walk

On Saturday, June 10th, twenty enthusiastic birders explored Paso Picacho campground in Cuyamaca State Park. It was a cool, partly-cloudy day, and the cooler than normal temperatures made the hike quite pleasant.  I was impressed with the skill level of the group, which included 14-year-old Luca, as it made my role as leader very easy. The best bird of the day was a Cassin’s Vireo, and we had nice looks at Black-chinned Sparrows and nesting Western Bluebirds. The Spotted Towhees and Black-headed Grosbeaks were abundant!  Following the walk, many of us stayed for a picnic lunch in the day-use area, and enjoyed the company of our birding friends.
