A pair of hoodies was in the golf pond near the club house Sunday.
Abnormally large numbers of Townsend's warblers were plucking some recently-hatched flying insects from the air, repeatedly fluttering within arm's reach of humans. The same behavior was not witnessed at Laguna Grande the same day, so that kind of insect hatching may have been very localized. Any idea what the bugs might be? This was in oaks 100 meters from the Carmel River.
