Mendocino college pond visit for Moorhen
- On Sunday 6-21-09 I went to the ponds where the COMMON MOORHEN young
were seen. I saw one breeding adult foraging across from me. On
arrival I flushed the GREEN HERON. Other birds included; SONG SPARROW,
NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD, ,CALIFORNIA TOWHEE, SPOTTED TOWHEE, ASH-THROATED
FLYCATCHER, BLACK PHOEBE-ONE LOOKING LIKE A FRESH YOUNG BIRD.
Surrounding area birds included; ACORN WOODPECKER, TREE SWALLOWS
hawking; NUTTALS WOODPECKER; LESSER GOLDFINCHES.
I missed the floating island-it was not moving . No rattlesnake though
I was alert due to Karen's report.
At the Bottle brush up by the utility road North of the walk-in to the
pond, there were numerous ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRDS, and a beautiful
SELAPHORUS MALE that repeatedly tried to enter and feed ,but was being
harassed and chased away. Back and out the gate at that North pond
there were WESTERN BLUEBIRDS; MOURNING DOVES; CANADA GEESE WITH young,
and a lone WESTERN GREBE. 7 COMMON RAVENS came down to drink. bd
