Yesterday afternoon the wind was blowing fairly hard and possibly causing a concentrated
push of mixed swallows headed west (north)along the Gaviota coast. They were consistent in good numbers from the airport to the Gaviota Tunnel. The Santa Ynez River in Buellton also had a great showing of swallows as well. I guess the best sighting yesterday just at dusk, was one Swainson’s Hawk going to roost? At River View Park in Buellton.
This morning up near the north end of Ladera Lane in Montecito had many singers, Yellow-rumps, Townsends, Orange-crowned along with many other common birds. They all seemed to be moving up slope towards Montecito Peak. By 9:00am all of this started to end. A kinda cool sighting is a Oak Titmouse was exploring a small hole in a telephone pole about 30 feet up. He keeps singing near it, so maybe he has found a nice high rise cavity to nest in.
