Community Gardens TRV 6-4-18
The feeders at space 63 were full this morning early. I brought along a chair and observed for 1 hour.
Tricolored Blackbird – two males, perhaps a third. Several possible female tricoloreds also.
Black-headed Grosbeak – one visiting the feeders while a second bird sang off in the distance
Rose-breasted Grosbeak – reported previously by Nancy & Mark
Lawrence's Goldfinch- 2 males and several juvenile/females. The juveniles were not observed begging from the males and appear to have figured out how to find their own chow.
American Goldfinch- many at the feeders and throughout the Gardens. 50+?
Lesser Goldfinch (only included here as it completes the trifecta)
Northern Cardinal (male)
Later, I walked the edge of the tree line and found:
Lazuli Bunting – a worn female
Yellow-breasted Chat 2
Yellow Warbler 4
Bell's Vireo – singing
