- Go to Carbon Canyon! It's beautiful. Hillsides covered in mustard,
wildflowers, green, green grass, blue skies, birdsong filling the air
and not very many people.
Pacific Slope Flycatchers 5-6
Dark Headed Juncos
American Goldfinches- a flock!
3-4 Bullock's Orioles-near the lake, very approachable.
Hooded Oriole-near tennis courts, not so approachable.
Violet Green Swallows- over lake.
Red Tailed Hawks
Ruby Crowned Kinglets
and the ubiquitous Yellow Rumps.
- I birded Carbon Canyon Regional Park on the far western end, going behind
the now-dirt-parking lot onto a trail, surrounded by yarrow and thistles
towering over my head, and when I returned to the grassy area I saw more
birds. Here are the highlights, seen between 10:30-11:30 am.
possibly Pacific Slope Flycatcher
Western Bluebird carrying food to nesting box
the latter two in the same tree!
Also went over to Riverdale Park around 4 pm this afternoon with the dog
and was pleased to see two male and one female Western Tanagers on the
western and northern ends of the park near the treetops. They've been
bulldozing the riverbed again so only saw a couple Black Necked Stilts
and American Avocets in addition to White Throated Swifts, Black Phoebes,
Mallards and TVs.
