Good afternoon birders,
With the cooler weather, it was a perfect morning to bird Santa Ana NWR. The Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet stayed in sight for everyone to get a good look while birding the Chachalaca Trail. Out at Pintail Lakes, two Soras were in view for almost a minute and there were quick glances at a Virginia Rail.
Join us for a daily bird walk, leaving the Visitor's Center at 8:30 am. Thursday's walk, 2/16/17, will be short - only 2 hours, due to a volunteer meeting.
