July Bird Walk Report

J & B Snow joined me for an early hike up Spring Valley Creek Trail. We enjoyed 29 species of birds, one lifer for J. and a handful for B. It's always fun to help people see life birds. The Canyon Wren was new for J. Snow. It gave us up close looks right at the rocky slope at the first gate along the trail. It was fun to watch it spar with a House Finch. Lots of young Bullock's Orioles and still abundant Yellow-breasted Chats and Lazuli Buntings.

Here is the total list:

California Quail
Mourning Dove
Great Horned Owl
Downy Woodpecker
Western Wood-Pewee
Say's Phoebe
Western Kingbird
