Made a run through some select spots in the county. Nothing out of the ordinary. This leaves plenty of time for shooting pictures.
Stop1: Cooper Mountain Nature Park: Single Townsend’s and Orange-crowned Warblers, Hutton’s Vireo, singing Western Tanager, Hermit Thrush, several Western Bluebirds and a pair of Purple Finches were the highlights.
Stop2: Jackson Bottom
Both yellowlegs (mostly Lesser) and many Long-billed Dowitchers were present on the mudflats on the southern edge of the big pond.
Stop3: Fernhill Wetlands
The Sabine’s Gull has left. 2 White Pelican are still lingering.
Stop4: UJ Hamby Park, Emma Jones Nature Preserve
Yesterday’s Yellow Warbler at Emma Jones has departed, only Yellow-rumpeds remain. UJ Hamby had a Swainson’s Thrush. Goldfinches are plentiful at Emma Jones.
