Field Trip Report

Garin Park, Hayward
Saturday, May 7, 2011, 8:00 - 11:30am

Windy, overcast conditions today did not keep the birds or birders down. The park was full of birdsong and we saw many birds entering nests or carrying food.

Highlights include many colorful birds: Lazuli Bunting, Bullock's Oriole, Black Headed Grosbeak, Wilson's Warbler and many others.

Flycatchers were everywhere: Western Kingbird, Ash-Throated Flycatcher, Olive-Sided Flycatcher, Black Phoebe and Pacific-slope Flycatcher. Wild Turkeys offered comic relief and some participants saw a skunk.
