HI Friends,

Twenty-eight birders met up this morning at Oak Hill Memorial Park. This location is a regular winter (February) field trip. Today’s summer field trip was not very productive for finding the birds, but the weather was perfect for a leisurely fun walk. Everybody had a very enjoyable morning. We found 34 bird species. Lots of Western Bluebirds, Acorn Woodpeckers, & Cassin’s Kingbirds. A Great Horned Owl made a sudden fly-by to a large palm tree and then later flushed when we found it again.

Here’s our species list:

Double-crested Cormorant
Green Heron
Turkey Vulture
Red-shouldered Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
Eurasian Collared-Dove
Mourning Dove
Great Horned Owl
Anna’s Hummingbird
Allen’s Hummingbird
Acorn Woodpecker
Nuttall’s Woodpecker
Pacific-slope Flycatcher
Black Phoebe
Say’s Phoebe
Cassin’s Kingbird
California Scrub-Jay
American Crow
Common Raven
Oak Titmouse
White-breasted Nuthatch
Western Bluebird
Northern Mockingbird
European Starling
Spotted Towhee
California Towhee
Chipping Sparrow
Hooded Oriole
House Finch

Scaly-breasted Munia

NOTE: After we completed the walk, Sonja and Michael checked out Mountain View Park (adjacent to Oak Hill) and found six additional species:

Lark Sparrow
Orange-crowned Warbler
Wilson’s Warbler
Western Tanager
Warbling Vireo
American Kestrel
