Northern Waterthrush – Agua Caliente

Northern Waterthrush – Agua Caliente
By – 1:28 pm
A Northern Waterthrush was hanging out in the campground at Agua Caliente County park today – in the area where the stream crosses the road (near the restroom). It was singing off and on all morning, but I did not know what species I was hearing. I sat on a rock and just watched for a while, and eventually it came out and foraged in the open.  Other birds of note out there today – a small flock of Brant (geese) flew over just before sunrise. A Green Heron tried repeatedly to land at the little stream near the restroom – it kept getting spooked and then would fly in a circle around the camp. Oddly enough, this species has been reported there before, always in April , but it was a new patch bird for me. At least one Green-tailed Towhee was seen several times around the camp. The campground was pleasantly birdy, but less so than last week or the week before. Once again chats and Pacific Slope Flycatchers seemed to be everywhere. I did not hike any of the trails, but moved from spot to spot around the camp and let the birds come to the trees near me. Checklist for today: https://ebird.org/checklist/S108397877  Nancy ChristensenRamona
