- I had the pleasure of hiking Telegraph Trail earlier this morning at
Carbon Canyon Regional Park. I saw a sparrow with distinctive head marks
that could place it as either Song or White Crowned - but what is
stumping me is the breast. A little below the markings it was a
yellow-buff breast in the sunlight (and this is well after dawn so no
golden glow from the rising sun). What did I see?
Also, is there a possibility of Lincoln's Sparrow at CCRP?
In addition to the above, I enjoyed watching:
Blue Gray or CA Gnatcatchers (in a flock, sun was at an awkward angle,
more likely CA)
Lesser Goldfinches in a territorial battle
Black Headed Grosbeaks
Orange Crowned Warbler in the underbrush - ID by body not head, dull
olive-grey upper body, muted gold underside. Wouldn't oblige with full
and, of course, the pleasure of being away from the madding crowd in
solitude, with rabbits and squirrels.
