Bill Tice reports 3 Short-billed Dowitchers at the narrows at Baskett
Slough this morning.
At my home north of Independence, I'm going through hummingbird food like
crazy. Maybe upwards of 2 cups a day! I counted yesterday and had at
least 7 hummingbirds in the morning, though I think there are more. I saw
at least 4 Annas and 3 Rufous on the feeders. I have been watching to see
if anything else unusual joins the others, but nothing that I have seen yet.
Yesterday while working at my computer I saw a Barn Owl fly out of my
neighbors horse barn, right in the middle of the afternoon! I hadn't seen
it for a while, but I guess I know where it stays now.
