AV04/13 Big Morongo Walk Wednesday 16th June 2004

We thought the morning might be rather warm, but it was not and we had a very pleasant walk covering the Marsh Trail, barn, meadow and the park. Six Summer Birders found 35 species, including 'our' Vermillion Flycatchers and Blue Grosebeak as life birds for Alexa.
As we followed our usual bucolic Wednesday morning, 6,000 miles away in bustling St Ives, Cornwall, Mrs M and Wander Woman were making mayhem: I know St Ives and it's Art Colony and it may never be the same again!
Wednesday walks will continue at 8am

A number of our birders, taking advantage of our very extensive research, have been to Pipe's Canyon and caught the Mountain Quail; maybe we/they should consider a charge!

Don't forget our Top of the Tram walk on Friday 25th June. Car Pool at Big Morongo at 9am or meet at the tram at 9.45am to catch the first tram at 10am, fee about $20. Bring a picnic lunch and plenty of water, or whatever for what could be some good birding. I was there recently and had a really good sighting of a White-headed Woodpecker.
