Sunol Regional Wilderness

Matthew Dodder

Yesterday, I led my Palo Alto Adult School birding class to Sunol
Regional Wilderness. Activity was slower than expected, but it was a
lovely day and several first-of-season species were found. After
lunch, we had intended to drive by the Calaveras Reservoir, but found
the road blocked due to a car accident. Highlights from Sunol include:

Golden Eagle
White-throated Swift
Western Wood Pewee
Ash-throated Flycatcher
Western Kingbird
Warbling Vireo
Cassin's Vireo
Warbling Vireo
Yellow Warbler
Wilson's Warbler
Western Tanager
Black-headed Grosbeak
Lazuli Bunting
Rufous-crowned Sparrow
Bullock's Oriole

Dragonflies observations helped occupy the slow periods.
We found the following:

Black Saddlebags (first of season)
Red Rock Skimmer
Flame Skimmer
Cardinal Meadowhawk
Pacific Clubtail

Bluets and Dancers... (did not ID)
