Desert Dickcissel

1:46 pm

Hello all, I had a Dickcissel this morning at the Borrego WTP (settling ponds). It was present very briefly then headed north. I spent an hour looking for it, and actually looked around in areas I could drive to north of the ponds, but did not find it.

The migration conveyor belt was working today. Birds would drop in, move bush to bush headed north, then pick up and fly onward. It was nice to see things on the move, but a bit frustrating as well since things did not stick around for long.
