south county birds


Kevin Zimmer
 

I spent the morning in south county, and was nearly blown away by the winds (especially at Oso Flaco).

The "Tres Amigos" (Cackling Goose, Snow Goose & Greater White-fronted Goose) continue at Oceano Campground, but no sign of the Ross's Goose at the lagoon across the street.

Tons of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the willows, most with messy faces from feeding in willow catkins. There was a singing male Wilson's Warbler there, and 2 Northern Rough-winged Swallows.

Oso Flaco was pretty unproductive (it was hard to even stand up on the boardwalk given the winds), but there was a single Northern Rough-winged Swallow in with 15+ Tree Swallows.
