Good Evening Birders,
I had a great birding stroll along the Sequoia Audubon Trail at Pescadero Marsh this afternoon. Highlights included continuing adult BALD EAGLES (2) roosting in the Great Blue Heron rookery eucalyptus trees. Also, the EURASIAN WIGEON was among the multitudes of American Wigeon on the main pond (presumably the same one that has been reported recently on the north pond). An AMERICAN PIPIT was awkwardly working its way across pickleweed. Several GREATER YELLOWLEGS were heard and seen along the main pond edges. A marsh mainstay, several NORTHERN HARRIERS were seen soaring / foraging low and slow just over the marsh vegetation. A SAVANNAH SPARROW was among many Song Sparrows, White-crowned Sparrows and Golden-crowned Sparrows. Among the great variety of wintering water fowl were several NORTHERN PINTAILS rounding out a great outing. Looking forward to the Ano Nuevo CBC on Saturday!
