Birding North Berkeley 1/23/18

Today I did street birding in the North Berkeley flatlands. We went from Gilman St. to Strawberry Creek Park along the Ohlone Greenway, through Cedar Rose Park  and included a number of side streets. We found 27 species. Unusual for this area was a Stellar Jay, which are usually found closer to the Berkeley Hills. Also of interest was a Western Bluebird pecking at itself in a car window and mirror and good looks at Nuttall’s Woodpeckers and Cedar Waxwings.
