Palomar Audubon Mission Trails Bird Walk Report

Today Palomar Audubon walked the Mission Trails Regional Park dam to grasslands trail. It was mostly cloudy with light breezes and temperatures in the high 50s to low 60s. Rain was forecasted, but we managed to complete our walk before the incoming storm. It was quite an enjoyable birding day!

About 28 birders navigated the trail which in some areas was surrounded by beautiful purple blooming Ceanothus. House Wrens were in abundance to the extent that they just may be taking over the world.  There were the usual suspects seen in the habitats that we traversed. A few of the highlights were a first-of-season (FOS) for most Black-headed Grosbeak, a Grasshopper Sparrow ID’d by song, and a Green-tailed Towhee.

A huge amount of gratitude goes out to Steve Ellis for compiling the eBird checklist, all the bird sighters, listeners, supporters, and photographers.

Thank you.
