BMB05/12 Indio Hills 7th March 2005

Twelve Big Morongo Birders had a very fine day in the Indio Hills, which were awash with colour ranging from green mountains to yellow/blue/purple swathes, which were a sight to see – and surpassed the fine showing we had last year. We ran the no-name trail off Dillon and led by the inestimable Mr Smiley successfully challenged the unpaved road to Frontage junction, then on to the lower park at Cottonwood Springs. We saw so many species and your scribe’s record, which is only partial, was around sixty. Having been shamed by Linda into continuing my list it is included in my email advice - if you would like a copy please ask.

More flower walks will be arranged shortly (we hear that Section Six is almost ready) but we should find interesting flowers on our scheduled visit to Anza Borrego on Monday 14th. Meet at the truck stop at 7am, bring lunch and water. I have been reminded that this will probably be a full day outing, so be prepared.

Good Birding………..bb
