Montrose Point, 2016 March 27

1:35 – 3:05pm
Conditions: Overcast, rain approaching. 57° F.

We saw 22 different species today in 1.5 hours at the hedge. Here is the list: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S28584539.

Highlights: Winter Wrens (a first for us), Fox Sparrows (also a first), Mourning Dove, and an American Kestrel. I wish I had a good picture to share of the Kestrel but it was not to be. Participate in my frustration!

Photo sans head of the American Kestrel. The quality of the photo was the best of the lot, but no head!
