Comments:

Today's birding highlights were many: Spotted Sandpiper displaying its distinctive foraging style and tail-bobbing, great looks at black-chinned and broad-tailed hummingbirds at feeders, a Cordilleran Flycatcher in excellent light to show its tear-drop-shaped eyering and wingbars, and the opportunity to see the tiny red dotted streaks on male Yellow Warblers. Our group included new Naturalist Interns who are just joining ACES staff as well as a few new birders from the community contributing to a rich learning and sharing experience for all of us. Our mini-field trip site was a private residence in Little Woody Creek where we saw a variety of birds attracted to extensive gardens and hummingbird feeders as well as species representative of the surrounding oak mountain shrublands.
