Re: [CALBIRDS] VEERY and BLUE-HEADED VIREO, Point Reyes sightings for Friday 1 October 2004
- And today, here's what I was aware of:
My group saw 2 Tropical Kingbirds and a 3rd juvenal(?) plumaged kingbird
at Drakes Beach. We didn't get a good look at its tail features.
Mendoza Ranch had the continuing BLUE-HEADED VIREO, a CANADA
WARBLER, and a Chestnut-sided Warbler. Later, we heard that the
and Blackpoll warblers were still present.
At Nunes Ranch, we saw one each of White-throated and Clay-colored
We did not see the earlier reported WORM-EATING and PRAIRIE WARBLERS.
At the Fish Docks, a YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER was seen and photo'd;
another BLUE-HEADED VIREO was present (we didn't see this one) and a
Cassin's Vireo was around for comparison; 1 or 2 Magnolia Warblers were
Along the road to the Fish Docks the dark morph and a light morph
Hawks were poking around the field downhill from the road.
The lighthouse trees were very "dead".
