This morning I came across a hybrid RED NAPED, RED BREASTED SAPSUCKER on the Alamitos Creek trail. Later on San Vicente I found two interacting RED BREASTED SAPSUCKERS on the abandoned property across from Stile Ranch trailhead of Santa Teresa Co Park.
I located a seep below an orange lichen covered rock on the Stile Ranch hillside constantly visited by sparrows and saw SAVANNAH, WHITE CROWNED, GOLDEN CROWNED SPARROWS. The area is extremely dry with fewer birds than normal for this time of year. A single RUFOUS CROWNED SPARROW was heard only. A SAY'S PHOEBE and AM. KESTREL pair were perched nearby.
Saturday, 11-10 I heard a flat chip call and found a male BLACK THROATED GRAY WARBLER in New Almaden.
Wednesday 11-07 Five CHIPPING SPARROWS were together on the ground, under the redwood grove in TJ Martin Park. Three others were seen in other park locations.
