Poorwill, Berkeley


FOS sighting of a Common Poorwill on the upper Strawberry Canyon fire trail around 6AM this morning (10-11) It was perched on the bench that's at the beginning of the flat trail after climbing uphill. It flew off over the embankment as wasn't there on my return. I was unable to run the trail the last 6 days due to car issues so it may have appeared sooner. The earliest fall arrival date I have is 10/1.
