Got to see the Rock Wren at Dixon Meadows this morning. Distant view for about a minute. Still fun though.
Had a female American Redstart at the house. Had some other fall warblers feeding on the fruit of our Kousa Dogwoods. Will have to look at photos to figure out what they were. This was the first time in twenty years that I have seen warblers feeding and fighting in these trees. The rain must have been good as we had a bumper crop of fruit.
