Field Trip Report

San Bruno Mountain County Park
March 22nd, 2009
Laurie Graham & Jeff Fairclough

The weather was very cold, with 20-25 mph winds, and twice, light rain. Participants receive the Croix de SBM: Laurie, Jeff, Edwin, JC, and Paul. The birding was nonexisitent until we hit a patch of sunshine on the Old Guadalupe Trail where there is Albizia and Acacia trees. We walked out the Crocker Gate to check Lee's feeders, where a blast of wind coming from the west almost blew us away.
