Burrowing Owls (6) adults at 3 different burrows
Willow Creek: Went by to check on Red-shouldered Hawk's
While walking along the agricultural field I could hear Western Meadowlark's singing.
Horned Lark's were everywhere.
Two beautiful Blue Grosbeak hanging out on the barbed wire and flying back and forth into the Mesquite.
A Golden Eagle was on the ground beneath a Mesquite tree. He lifted up into the air as I surprised him. The wing span of this bird is incredible at close range. A Common Raven, came and chased the Golden Eagle for a few minutes and then the Golden Eagle settled in the top of a Mesquite tree to look out over the agricultural field.
White-faced Ibis (12) hanging out in the middle of the lush green agricultural field. Yellow-headed Blackbird's around a pond, with a male Ruddy Duck tucked into the reeds. An American Coot and a Mallard swam on the pond. Great-tailed Grackle's were calling. A Northern Mockingbird was making his presence known with his constant chattering of different bird's song's.
