The walk in was pretty uneventful though I did see a Black-throated Green Warbler. When I reached the viewing area I was surprised to see a Green-tailed Towhee perched on the wooden rail. I had left my usual camera in the car as I was carrying the heavy Swarovski scope and the towhee quickly flew into a nearby bush. Could I digiscope it? Not a great shot but it's identifiable and my first Green-tailed Towhee at Sal del Rey. Seems pretty early.
Two good days in a row!
