Two migrants of note today, at our home in Soquel:
1. An relatively early LINCOLN SPARROW showed up around 9am in our garden, as I was taking a break after my first meeting of the day. Not only is this my "first of season" (FOS), it is the first at our home in Soquel. Unfortunately, not able to get a picture.
2. In the evening, a WESTERN TANAGER was fly-catching from the upper parts of nearby large trees. Last fall, this species gorged on the grapes on our "Roger's Red" grapevine. Plenty of ripe grapes, so hoping we get lots of avian visitors this season.
