Although it was very cold (50's), windy and rainy at times, we had some nice birds. Both a Redtailed and Red-shouldered Hawk gave us some nice views. A Sharp-shinned Hawk and a Cooper's Hawk were also observed. The mystery bird from last week was named by Frank Sterret. It was a Magnolia Warbler. We had several mags today. He wins a guided day of hawkwatching in Borrego Springs, California. Lots of warblers today but not a lot of species. Today's quiz bird is a bit more difficult.
