Juvenile Black-headed Grosbeaks have been around for awhile now.

Flocks of Bushtits are starting to be a common occurrence.

Black-throated Warblers are passing through our area.

Black-capped Chickadee’s calls often tell us where the migrants are.

While we were talking to a nice gentleman with a very beautiful, large German Shepherd we noticed a Coyote in the farm field in the distance. The German Shepherd noticed the Coyote and barked causing the Coyote to lope across the field as fast as it could, watching the large dog all the way.

Willow Flycatchers were seen in many locations in different light conditions.

A Pied-billed Grebe was seen with a fish that seemed large for it.

A couple of Spotted Sandpipers were seen on logs and lily pads.

A juvenile Song Sparrow was seen in the shrubs near the edge of the path.
