Hi E.B. Birders,
This morning Kitty O'Neil and I scouted out Black Diamond Mines for an upcoming Golden Gate Audubon field trip we will be co-leading on Feb. 12th. Highlights included:
Prairie Falcon - 1
Barn Owl - 1
Red-breasted Sapsucker - 1
Rock Wren - 1
Phainopepla -a silent female
White-throated Sparrow -1 seen in the ravine from the end of the last parking lot. The first I've seen at BD Mines.
White-throated Sparrow was also at Hidden Lake Park in Martinez yesterday, in the weedy area, just north of the soccer field.
All the Best Birding,
