#birdsaturday @ Galileo Hills

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.

Some photo highlights:

Sprague’s Pipit

A Sprague’s Pipit was reported at the Silver Saddle Ranch in Galileo Hills of Kern Co. this morning. My dad and I raced up there late afternoon to try and get some photos before the sun went down. Fortunately someone was on the bird right as we pulled into the parking lot. The bird was very cooperative often coming within minimal focusing distance!
