Sibley Volcanic RP 5/29

It was a beautiful morning yesterday at Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve, with all of the local specialties teed up and singing - RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW, LARK SPARROW, LAZULI BUNTING, CALIFORNIA THRASHER, OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, GOLDEN EAGLE, AND many ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS. Actually, the flycatcher wasn't singing, just flycatching (in the tops of the dead eucalyptus on the Loop Trail), and the eagle just flew by a couple of times, but you get the idea. The sparrows and most of the buntings were on the Volcanic Trail and the unnamed use trail that extends southeast along the ridge from the Volcanic Trail to the big quarry pit.
