Saw one house sparrow, landed on a telephone wire just close enough to see the facial markings and hear the call, and moved on after calling a few times.

Description

There were lots of starlings out, so I have noted the largest group I saw together for long enough to count. There were likely some larger groups and a whole lot more individuals.

Description

I had 2 blue jay sightings, but my guess is that it was the same one twice. It was flying very fast between covered locations and being relatively quiet.

Herring Gull Larus argentatus

Description

There were a lot of gulls in the area, but I was able to successfully identify one as a herring gull due to its light colored feet and red mark on bill as it flew overhead. I am assuming there were other species around, and that I have underestimated the total individuals.

American Crow Corvus brachyrhynchos

Observer

Date

Description

I spent some time observing crows in 2 different contexts. The first was a lone crow perched on a low tree branch making a kind of laughing call, and it stayed there for at least 5 minutes. The other was a group of 13 birds that moved together, and spent some time in a couple of trees before moving on. It was interesting to observe how the birds interacted within the group.

Black-capped Chickadee Poecile atricapillus

Description

Saw 3 chickadees throughout the hike, generally spaced out pretty well with temporally and geographically. These is definitely a chance that one of these birds was repeated in my count, but I heard enough chickadee calls that I think it was likely that were different. As usual they were very curious, and these were the only birds I actually was able to get a good look at.

Description

My quantity of 80 seen was obviously an estimate. It seemed like there were constantly crows flying overhead, most coming from the northwest. They would have been hard for me to identify, but they were plenty noisy.

A lone downy woodpecker foraging for food on a tree. We were unsure if this was a hairy or downy woodpecker, but its beak seemed small so we went with downy. We observed this bird for a little while.
