Working in the yard pretty much all of Saturday, August 28, managed to find (see/hear) 35 bird species. Among them 2 Orange-crowns, 2 Yellows (we only get them in
Aug-Sept), a Bl-thr Gray, a Wilson's, and (just off the drive), a Com. Yellowthroat for the warbler category. The sunflower seed-laden feeder was mobbed by about 20 CB Chickadees and lesser numbers of BC; also, about 7 RB Nuthatches visited at different times, allowing views from as close as 3 ft. The most noteworthy birds of the morning were a RED-EYED VIREO and a lingering PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER. While the latter is common here in spring and summer, they become difficult to find after about early Aug. Also, today at Discovery Park, another PURPLE MARTIN was over the south meadow. We don't get RE Vireo every year up here at Tiny's Land.
