Santa Rosa Plateau – Field Trip Results

HI Friends,

Yesterday, Saturday, February 22, fifteen birders walked the trails at Santa Rosa Plateau and we found a sparse 32 bird species. The weather was almost perfect which helped to make our long hike out to the Adobe Houses and back, a lot of fun. Beautiful scenery! The Reserve Ranger confirmed my suggestion that the current drought is contributing to lower populations of wildlife being seen this year. We had great looks at a California Thrasher and the White-tailed Kite. Here’s our list:
