Hi Birders,

A perfect day for Bonnie Doon EP. The sun came out and a cool breeze kept
the temperature comfy. There were many Orange-crowned Warblers, Bewick's
Wrens, and Scrub Jays, 3 Olive-sided Flycatchers, a pair of Hairy
Woodpeckers on the east side in the tall pines area as well as a pair of
Seller's Jays, 2 Hutton's Vireos, a plethora of Acorn Woodpeckers, a pair
of Flickers were seen copulating, and there were a couple of Purple
Martins. Each martin seemed to favor a different tree. One was a male, but
I am not sure of the sex of the other. The second did go into a hole on the
north side if a large, dead tree off a central trail across from the fire
station. There were 2 Red-shouldered Hawks. One was immature and the other
I did not see.Oddest of all was hearing a Western Meadowlark call 2-3 times!

There was a Spotted Sandpiper at Westlake Pond at 2:30. So cute with all
the continuous tail-bobbing! It was cold and windy there so I didn't linger.

Happy birding!
- Lisa
