We were greeted by a flight of over 100 CANADA GEESE heading north towards the golf course along Hwy 50 and about 200m west of the parking lot we found over 60 AMERICAN ROBINS feasting on Russian Olives. With the Robins, we found a MOCKINGBIRD, WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS, and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS. Back on the trail, we came across a MARSH WREN, many WC Sparrows, and hiding in a shrub a LINCOLN'S SPARROW. On the pond there were a couple of MALLARDS and a female WOOD DUCK. Many BLACK-BILLED MAGPIES especially around the COOPER'S HAWK. We saw a few RED-TAILED HAWKS, two KESTRELS, and a MERLIN. On the way back we found a single MEADOWLARK on a tee. We ended the walk with 37 species on a very pleasant morning.
