Palomar Mountain SP Field Trip Results

Hi Birders,

On Saturday June 24, fourteen birders walked the Doane Pond Nature Trail at Palomar Mountain State Park.
The weather was pretty warm, there were lots of annoying flies, and the trail was challenging due to felled trees and stream water.  We managed to find 32 bird species. I think the heat kept the birds hunkered down. Lots of nesting and feeding activity though.

Here’s our list:
Turkey Vulture
Red-shouldered Hawk
Red-tailed Hawk
American Coot
Band-tailed Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Anna’s Hummingbird
Rufous Hummingbird
Acorn Woodpecker
Nuttall’s Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Black Phoebe
Ash-throated Flycatcher
Steller’s Jay
American Crow
Violet-green Swallow
Mountain Chickadee
White-breasted Nuthatch
House Wren
Western Bluebird
American Robin
Common Yellowthroat
Spotted Towhee
California Towhee
Song Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
Black-headed Grosbeak
Red-winged Blackbird
