William Heise County Park/Santa Ysabel Mission Field Trip Report

Sixteen birders enjoyed perfect weather for the walk. We saw 45 species at Heise. Was not able to find a Black-chinned Sparrow, but did enjoy a Lazuli Bunting. The Purple Finch was heard only. At Santa Ysabel Mission, there was a large memorial event which complicated any birding. I have only a partial list of the birds seen there.
