Deb and I covered the IBM Almaden facility (private property) and part of Henwood Road for the Calero-Morgan Hill CBC yesterday. It was a beautiful day. Species count was down (45, a low for this sector), although overall bird numbers seemed good. Highlights included all six woodpecker species on the list, and five sparrow species. (We had both Lark and Rufous-crowned Sparrows this year, which can be variable. We missed Lincoln's Sparrow.) Raptors--both species and numbers--were lower than past years. We had both Bewick's and Rock Wrens, but missed Belted Kingfisher, California Thrasher, and Horned Lark. A great day to be outdoors with spectacular views of the Almaden Valley!
