This morning I heard the loud one note call of a PACIFIC SLOPE FLYCATCHER while driving along Camden before Harry Road. I stopped at the Casa Grande Museum in New Almaden and found a male HOODED ORIOLE calling from a tall palm. A HOUSE WREN sang from a residents yard and a male WILSON'S WARBLER was seen near the south Bertram Road bridge. I flushed a pair of WOOD DUCKS here and found a singing BROWN CREEPER and WESTERN BLUEBIRD pair. An ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER sang in Twin Creeks. Another stop gave me a WESTERN TANAGER and male TOWNSEND'S WARBLER, a bird I've not seen often this year.
At home a selasphorus hummingbird visited our feeder at noon and a male HOODED ORIOLE at our backyard feeder on March 21, remains.
