Frontera Audubon Thicket, 3/3/07

Despite a really perfect spring morning, birding was kind of dull this morning at Frontera Audubon Thicket. Early March is the most boring time of the birding year for me. Many of the wintering birds are headed back north while spring migrants and summer breeders have yet to arrive. Only five species of warblers today is the least I've seen since last August.

This Crested Caracara flyover is the first recorded for Frontera and the 190th species for the park.

This adult Gray Hawk was just three blocks to the east. He is a regular member of our neighborhhood.
