Coyote Hills Birds 4/6/19

Today we were hiking and birding with friends at Coyote Hills Regional Park. The birds were a little slow as some of the waterbirds and shorebirds have left for the season. We identified 23 species and heard several others that we were unable to id. We went to the Nectar garden where there were Hummingbirds among the native and exotic flowers. Butterflies were fairly scarce with the only sightings being a Painted Lady and a few Cabbage Whites.
