An outing today to Black Diamond Mines Regional Park yielded the following noteworthy species:
Black-throated Gray Warbler
In addition, we observed:
a pair of Red-tailed Hawks at a nest that a pair successfully used last year;
a Northern Harrier hunt and catch a large rodent (pocket gopher?);
and a Cooper's Hawk repeatedly attack Turkey Vultures that were apparently too close to its nest.
We observed a total of 40 species.
