Tuesday bird walk, September 03, 2013

The September 3, 2013 Bird Walk went to Plummer Road.

The morning started out with light rain and got heavy enough to keep the optics wet and fogged.  Fortunately it cleared somewhat before the walk ended.

Even with the damp weather we were rewarded with some great sightings of migrating birds.  One of the highlights were several Lincoln Sparrows seen throughout the walk.

A Merlin perched long enough for some great views and 3 Bonaparte's Gull were seen flying over the ocean side.  We were also treated to two Western Tanager's feeding in the bushes.

8 wet but cheerful birders saw and heard the following 42 species:

Canada Goose, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, Red-necked Grebe, Pied-billed Grebe, Pigeon Guillemot, Common Loon, Pelagic Cormorant, Great Blue Heron,

Lesser Yellowlegs, Western Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Bonaparte's Gull, California Gull, Glaucous-winged Gull, Belted Kingfisher, Merlin, Northern Flicker, Northwestern Crow, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Bewick's Wren, Pacific Wren, Spotted Towhee, Song Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow, Lincoln's Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow, Warbling Vireo, Hutton's Vireo, Orange-crowned Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Willow Flycatcher, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Western Tanager, Cedar Waxwing, American Robin, European Starling, Brown-headed Cowbird, Purple Finch, House Finch.
