My Intermediate Birding class from Palo Alto Adult school had a nice field trip yesterday, 10/28, to cap off our sparrow- and raptor-focused fall quarter. We enjoyed seeing all the regularly expected sparrows around the Johnston House, as well as the continuing LOGGERHEAD SHRIKE and a fairly late YELLOW WARBLER.
Around 1pm we made a short visit to Wavecrest Open Space, where we had at least 11 White-tailed Kites, several Northern Harriers, both accipiters, 1 Merlin, 2 American Kestrels, and a couple Red-tailed and Red-shouldered Hawks. The raptor bonanza was capped off with an OSPREY flying over heading south.
Happy birding, Rob Furrow
