I birded in Guadalupe Oak Grove Park only once in the past month and was surprised at the number of breeding birds and offspring today. Three PACIFIC SLOPE FLYCATCHERS were perched on a tree branch in the middle section off the heavily oaked trail. One flew off before I got this distant photo. An adult was heard here, another near the parking lot and another on the Villa's property. I had BLUE GRAY GNATCATCHERS in four locations, a family group of three on the wooded trail with more seen. A fledgling COOPER'S HAWK called and flew across the trail. I had all three COHA fledglings on a visit three weeks ago. Two HUTTON VIREO were heard. At least four NUTTALL'S Woodpecker and numerous ACORN WOODPECKERS were throughout the park. A MOURNING DOVE family of four was near their nest tree. A calling immature RED TAILED HAWK chased after an adult and RED SHOULDERED HAWK pair was seen. An ASH THROATED FLYCATCHER pair were in a clump of their favored Coyote Brush, which may have hidden fledglings.
People are finally getting the message and most park visitors wore masks today.
