Good Afternoon, birders,
Santa Ana was beautiful this morning! Cool morning sunshine warmed the air and foraging began as soon as the walk started at 8:30. Orange-crowned Warblers and Blue-gray Gnatcatchers seemed to be everywhere, keeping us glued to the trail, where we teased out a Nashville Warbler and Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet. Out on the ponds, everyone was treated to close views of shorebirds, while several hawks soared overhead. What a lovely day.
