California Thrashers - Lafayette Reservoir - 2/25

Paul Schorr

Today Nancy and I birded Lafayette Reservoir for the first time in several years. One of our target birds for the day was a California Thrasher and we were delighted to find a pair of them along the Canyon Trail about two hundred yards south of the Lakeside Nature Trail. They posed nicely on a dead snag and photos are included in my eBird report.

We tallied 34 species, and In addition to the thrashers, other noteworthy sightings included:

American White Pelican 7
Wrentit 2
Townsend’s Warbler
Hermit Thrush 4

Happy birding.
