Subject: [Tweeters] Notes from Roy - 11-18-11 Sparrows+ site count Date: Nov 18 15:12:28 2011 From: Denis DeSilvis - avnacrs4birds at q.com
To sorta celebrate hitting 120 species (after a recount) at our place in Roy since we moved here, I decided try to count what I saw, it being a relatively mild, almost precipitation-free day thus far. Including the pair of GREAT HORNED OWLS last night, there were 38 species. It was a lackluster day for ducks, but a surprise was two VARIED THRUSHES that were calling from near the apple tree down by the wetland. The SWAMP SPARROW and HARRIS'S SPARROW remain on site.
Mallard - 2
California Quail - 14
Northern Harrier - 1 (imm. bird has been here for several weeks)
