Coyote Hills Regional Park 02-12-11

All,

My Palo Alto Adult School birding class visited Coyote Hills RP
yesterday (02-12-11). It was a beautiful day with plenty of courtship
behavior among the lingering Waterfowl. Highlights included
TOWNSEND'S and ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER in the trees above the visitors
center, a female MERLIN flying over the D.U.S.T. Marsh, a drake
EURASIAN WIGEON o the north end of the Main Pond visible from the
Bayview trail, and two BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS in the Quarry Staging
Area.

With Black Rails being heard in the North Bay recently, it might be a
good time to listen to the marsh near the entrance kiosk...
