Comments

Clear, breezy, unseasonably warm. Heavy winter rains resulted in unusually abundant annual vegetation (largely Sisymbrium irio and Malva sp.), making observation of birds on traditionally bare ground difficult.

Observations

  1. Number observed: 32
  2. Number observed: 17
  3. Number observed: 10

    Comments: With one Ruddy Ground-Dove at Baumgartner & Wheeler

  4. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Feeding on the ground, in what I believe to be sycamore leaves, with 10 Inca Doves at the property at the intersection of Baumgartner and Wheeler. Ruddy, unscaled back, easily compared with the Inca Doves in scope view. Subsequently returned to try for a photograph, but the doves had moved (at least some to the pomegranate tree beside the house).
