Hi birders,

I stopped briefly at Jesse Owens park yesterday (apparently too late again for the Ruddy Ground Doves) and spotted a nice Slate-colored Junco in the flock hanging around the NW corner of the park, in the edge behind the houses. There are apparently some feeders in one yard and a fountain in adjacent yard but fences mostly block any views of them.

The Hooded Merganser is continuing at Agua Caliente. I had previously thought it was a female, but learned the eye, bill and head coloration point to immature drake. I didn’t see the Sage Thrasher, but understand it was seen earlier in the morning.

I guess I need to dress warmer and get outside earlier some days!
