TOWNSEND'S WARBLER

From Tami Reiser (11-21-17)

My friend has a late Townsends Warbler at her suet block, flew in with a bunch of Siskins.  Bear Creek area.

We wish he would stick around for the Christmas Bird Count!

MOURNING DOVE

A MOURNING DOVE was seen near the Chamber of Commerce Building on Wednesday. Definite sighting by a birder who has lived where there are many of them, so she's certain about her ID. Please let me know or post if anyone else sees it. We'd love to hear. A group of 60+ ROCK DOVES are there mid-day in t...

Birding Trip to Beluga Slough: 9-9-17

(What's a little weather when there are birds to be seen?)  One unexpected...

Birding Trip with Karl Stoltzfus: 8-26-17

This morning's trip out on the Bay with Karl Stoltzfus (Bay Excursions) was marvelous!  We woke up to heavy rain clouds and fog out over the bay, but by the time we were ready to go, the fog had broken up and we didn't have even a drop of rain the whole time, no wind, and very calm waters. Many good...

Possisbly not an AMERICAN REDSTART

I got another email from David Sibley this morning and he thinks it might not have been an American Redstart he heard yesterday at the Diamond Creek Trail area, but possibly a Yellow Warbler.  He said he was "...questioning the Redstart ID.  But maybe still worth checking." If anyone comes...
