Jewel Lake is full again
George A Suennen
Took a walk in Tilden Park to Jewel Lake. The lake is full of water again, but only had a couple of Mallards present. Lots of other birds around, but nothing unexpected. Lots of Juncos, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Kinglets (only one Golden-crowned, the rest were Ruby-crowned), Chickadees, Bushtits, and Jays (both Stellar's and Scrub). Got a great look at a Oak Titmouse, a pair of Brown Creepers, and a pair of Towsend's Warblers. Also saw a couple of Fox Sparrows and Spotted Towhees.
