#birdsaturday @ Galileo Hills

May 10

It was a beautiful day in the Mojave Desert on Saturday. Highs in the low 80’s and perfectly clear and sunny skies. Pretty much all migrants to be expected were encountered. The trees were dripping with Empids and Wilson’s Warblers. Hammond’s, Dusky, Gray, Pac-Slope Flycatchers and Western Wood-Pewee’s. Wilson’s, Yellow, MacGillivray’s, Yellow-rumped (Audubons and Myrtle), Orange-crowned, Nashville, Townsend’s and Black-throated Gray Warblers. Western Tanagers and Black-headed Grosbeaks sporting their alt. plumage colors.
