Birding Briones Regional Park 2/2/13

Today I went birding at Briones Regional Park with the “Birding by Ear” Class led by Denise Wight.   We birded the area around the the first parking lot to the left at the Bear Creek Staging area and then walked parts of Old Briones Rd. and the Seaborg Trail.  Although it wasn’t especially birdy and there were not exciting sightings we still managed to identify 40 species. Highlights of the day were seeing and hearing Varied Thrush, Purple Finches and watching large numbers of Robins who were making many different calls. The only flower seen in bloom was a Manzanita that was likely planted. We also saw Snowberries and Toyon berries. To see today’s bird list go to: Briones Regional Park Bird List 2/2/13
