I was able relocate the Vermillion Flycatcher in the Orchard, drinking from the stream. He seemed
to be having a great time. The link below _should_ go to some shots I have of it but I've only been
back online after a long hiatus and of course everything has changed so it if doesn't work and you
are interested drop me a line.
The Phainopepla were acting very strange. I saw at least three different squabbles between them
and Mockingbirds. Then I saw about five Phainopepla bathing in the creek alongside the Orchard.
Only other birds I saw of note were a Verdin and a Scrub Jay.
I did not see but got reliable reports of
I did see a Turkey Vulture wheel overhead so I can verify that this is indeed the first day of spring.
