Re: Saturday morning in Heather Farm Park
The yellow-rumped warblers have all been hanging out at Borges Ranch, feeding on the new tree growth. They are absolutely everywhere and in beautiful coloration, along with a large population of brightly colored western bluebirds and orange crowned warblers sounding off. Good opportunity for photographers!
Take the Borges Ranch entrance off of Castle Rock Road (past Northgate HS). From the parking lot at Bob’s Pond, you can do a loop on the Hanna Lane Trail off to the right, or go straight up the Costanoan Trail to the top of the hill. The trees along the Sulfur Creek Trail have been full of these birds in the afternoons (I’ve been there after 1:30 pm), as well as the other usual residents (titmouse, juncos, Nuttall’s and acorn woodpeckers, ruby crowned kinglets, lesser goldfinches, house wrens, kestrels, black phoebes, etc).
Very few people there, and very green and peaceful during these stressful times. Happy birding to all.
