Thanks for leading another informative
bird walk. As usually you imparted us with information that was
of great interest.
I took a few photos and put them on my
site, including the Red-breasted Sapsucker, Hooded Merganser, some
very cooperative Brown Creepers, and some discrete, yet suggestive
shots of the Red-shoulders Hawks.
Went to meet the new in-laws, but
managed to get a few bird photos in and around Cape Town.

Golden Gate Audubon Society, First Friday Birdwalk,
February 1, 2019, Tilden Nature Area. To Jewel Lake by the road
and back by the Lower Pack Rat Trail.
Today's theme was Winter Survival of Birds,
especially pertinent this week with the extreme weather in the
Midwest a concern for birds and those who love them!
We had a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks "in copulo" at
the TNA entrance, a pair of Hooded Mergansers at Jewel Lake, and
the Red-breasted Sapsucker continues at the cotoneaster behind
the first picnic table at the "blue placard" parking spaces near
the entrance. Allen’s Hummingbird has returned, as predicted by
the flowering of the Pink-flowering currant.
Best of Boids!
