Latest Field Trip Reports

Bobcat Ridge Field Trip

March 16, 2014. Leader: John Shenot

The only FCAS field trip since our last newsletter was the monthly survey at Bobcat Ridge on March 16. Twelve avid birders were greeted at the parking lot by a singing Canyon Wren. In addition to that beautiful song, other highlights of the day included great weather, a visit from an early migrant (Mountain Bluebird), and sightings of several Bobcat Ridge regulars: Bushtits, Clark’s Nutcrackers, Red Crossbills, Pygmy Nuthatches, and Golden Eagles.
