Jewel Lake Wilson's Warblers, Swainson's Thrush, Great Blue Heron
George A Suennen
I was going to join up with the 1st Friday group in Tilden, but with all the construction, they must be meeting in another location. Anyway, I took a hike to Jewel Lake (the long way around).
Highlights were the large number of Wilson's Warblers, a Swainson's Thrush (I usually just hear them, don't get to see them that often), a few Black-headed Grosbeaks, and a visit from a Great Blue Heron.
Here is the complete list, in order of appearance:
Dark-eyed Junco (adults and juvenile)
Great Blue Heron
I got some good photos of the Great Blue as well as the Robins and Hutton's Vireo plus a few others.
