Oak Hill Memorial Park Field Trip Results

Hi Friends,

On Saturday morning September 9, nineteen birders enjoyed a slow-paced walk around Oak Hill Memorial Park.
The weather was perfect with a cool breeze and the shade of the mature trees. A great location for easy summer birding.

However, as hard as we tried, we didn’t locate very many birds. Only 22 species! Lots of Acorn Woodpeckers, Cassin’s Kingbirds, and Mourning Doves. Best bird was the Great Horned Owl.

Many thanks to Ann Baldwin who sent me a photo of our “mystery flycatcher” to confirm it was a Western Wood-Pewee.
It was a life-bird sighting for her.

Here’s our species list:
Turkey Vulture
Red-shouldered Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
Great Horned Owl
Anna’s Hummingbird
Acorn Woodpecker
Nuttall’s Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Western Wood-Pewee
