Birds, But No Monarchs At Aquatic Park – Photos 11/3/20

We did an a short early morning walk to look for Monarch Butterflies at Aquatic Park in Berkeley today.  We didn’t find any in the usual spots or anywhere else, which was surprising as we frequently seeing them when walking around town the last several weeks.

There were many birds on the water including Buffleheads, Coots, Mallards, Double-crested Cormorants,  Pied-billed Grebe and Gulls . We saw a large number of Snowy Egrets as well as Great Egrets, and a Great Blue Heron. There were many Lesser Goldfinches and Anna’s Hummingbirds in the trees.
