Subject: LAS Field Trip: Rancho San Rafael, Reno
There was 13 birders out yesterday for the field trip through Rancho San
Rafael and the Nature Trail at the south end of Evans Canyon. First, we
didn't hear or see a single Warbler and only saw one GRAY FLYCATCHER. At
the pond there were juvenile PIED-BILLED GREBE and COOTS. There were a few
RUDDY DUCKS and many MALLARDS too. A highlight for me was a flyby of what
looked like an immature VIRGINIA RAIL. It was very quite and calm morning
with only 26 species being seen or heard, which is a low count for this
area.
