Black Diamond: MacGillivray, Lawrence, Phainopepla


Lee Friedman
 

Many thanks to Paul Schorr (April 7) and Jim Chiropolos (April 10) for their helpful posts about sightings at Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. The Phainopepla was in the same area Paul described, this morning in the uphill trees from the parking lot at the end of Somersville Road. Jim saw many Lawrence's Goldfinch far into the park, but this morning at least one of them was very near the trailhead to the Stewartville trail above the parking lot. The MacGillivray's Warbler was just off of the Chaparral Loop Trail by the small Foot Bridge. 
 
 
Good birding all,
