Yellow-billed Magpies in Lodi

Pat Paternostro

You may have noticed my recent eBird reports of 40+ Magpies near Peterson Park here in Lodi.  I saw them again this evening, and was able to find out where they were heading.  The flock is roosting in a couple Redwoods in the neighborhood just east of the park.  When I re-found them, there seemed to be more like 50+.  Not sure why that location, but it’s pretty cool to see so many magpies right in town!  
Enjoy the cooler weather this weekend.
