Oceano 9/1

Brad Schram

An hour's walk through Oceano around the pond and through the campground this morning produced only very few migrants.  The eucalyptus tree below pines behind the horseshoe pits in the campground held the most birds including YELLOW & BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLERS (one each) and a WESTERN WOOD PEWEE.

It was gray and cool, the insects undoubtedly sticking fast to their protective hiding places, so activity was low.  Still, the overall impression was of habitat waiting for the first passerine migrant wave.
