A NASHVILLE WARBLER and ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER were both "nectaring" on a flowering shrub Tuesday. A CHIPPING SPARROW showed up later in another bush. BAND-TAILED PIGEONS (16) and CALIFORNIA QUAIL (20) were in backyard feeding areas along with Mourning Doves and EC Doves. Juncos have left but we still have over-wintering WT SPARROW (yellow morph), WC SPARROWS, AND GC SPARROWS (with the Song Sparrows and Spotted Towhees normally here). COWBIRDS (4) showed up a couple days ago mixed with RW Blackbirds. Two immature GH OWLS are begging in the woods for parents to bring food...One DOWNY WOODPECKER been drumming on a dead branch for over a week...Spring has sprung !
Good Birding, John Thomas 5 mi NE of Silverton POST: Send your post to <obol...> JOIN OR QUIT: http://www.freelists.org/list/obol OBOL archives: www.freelists.org/archive/obol Contact moderator: <obol-moderators...>
