Corona Heights 12/5/09: SELASPHORUS sp. et al


Dominik Mosur
 

Birded the hill around work on the lunch hour (12:30 - 1:15 p.m.)

Highlights:

SELASPHORUS sp. hummingbird (in oaks/scrub, north side of park, possibly the same Selasphorus that I first found here in mid October, subsequently refound several times by myself and Brian Fitch)

NUTTALL'S WOODPECKER (female, working the large euke in the open space next to 168 Museum Way, just before it becomes the Randall Museum parking lot, this is also probably a continuing bird that was first found here in August)

Also of note:
Orange-crowned Warbler (lutescens, also another likely continuer/wintering bird)
Turkey Vulture (fly-over, 12:45-12:50 p.m.)
light/pale morph HY Red-tailed Hawk (fly-over, 1:00p.m., driven off by ravens)
American Kestrel (the Randall bird!, showing nicely on the fence above the parking lot/Caution Falling Rocks signs)

Good birding,
Dominik Mosur
