Tweets - it wasn't exactly warm, and it rained lightly for the first 2 hours
or more this morning. Even after it stopped raining, it was very damp and
chill; I declared the day to be an honorary addition to February. And for
the most part, the birds agreed. But there are a few weak signs of spring,
and the species count was not down in February depths.

Highlights:

Cackling Goose Still hundreds
Ring-necked Pheasant Heard for the 1st time in 2011 (?)
Wilson's Snipe 8-10 east of East Meadow
Anna's Hummingbird I counted at least 7
R.-breasted Sapsucker 2, one drumming
Northern Shrike Near slough, west of slough for a bit
Golden-cr. Kinglet Ubiquitous, some singing
Varied Thrush At least 2 at Dog Central, mansion
Townsend's Warbler 3+ just east of park office
Western Meadowlark One north of 7-8-9; new for 2011

Singing/displaying birds: Anna's Hummingbird, Red-breasted Sapsucker,
Bewick's Wren, Marsh Wren, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet,
American Robin, Varied Thrush, Spotted Towhee, Song Sparrow, Dark-eyed
Junco, Red-winged Blackbird, Purple Finch, House Finch.

For the day, 57 species.
