Hello Tweets,
Earlier this morning I was outside with playing my daughter when a flock of
about ten Band-Tailed Pigeon's flew over heading south. One bird was of
similar size and shape to the BT's, but obviously much lighter. My
immediate thought was Eurasian-Collared, but I only got the bird in my
binoculars for a few seconds and I couldn't ascertain if it had any of the
field marks for that species. What puzzled me is that I have seen EC Doves
mix with Mourning Doves, but I've never seen them mix with the more forest
dwelling BT Pigeons. I was just curious if anyone had witnessed EC Doves
mixing with Band-Tailed Pigeons before?

Other highlights of the morning included a singing Golden-Crowned Kinglet,
and distant calling Pileated Woodpecker, and a few Pine Siskins flying over
which were my first of the year. Last Sunday I had my first ever flyover of
Evening Grosbeaks.
