I did a bit of south county birding in the morning, before the rains hit this afternoon . Birds of note included:
1 immature BALD EAGLE - I initially recorded it as a Golden Eagle but even at the time was wondering about the id. After reviewing my images, I now believe that it was an imm. Bald Eagle. Wonder if it was the same bird that Lois and friends saw a few days ago near the intersection of Watsonville Slough and San Andreas Rd., by a flooded field . Here is a link to an image of the bird:
1 WHITE BREASTED NUTHATCH. - Seen on the trees near table 22 at Pinto Lake City park. No images of this bird, but likely the same bird that has been sporadically recorded in the area. Nice to know it is still around.
1 MERLIN - Flying like a straight like a bullet at Pinto Lake City park. My first one of the year.
