Yard list: Oct 2012

Six new species were added to the Fun Birding Towers yard list in October, taking the total to an impressive 78. Not bad in six months.

Four of the new birds were sparrows, all expected: VESPER, WHITE-CROWNED, BREWER’S and CHIPPING SPARROWS. A YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER was also expected, but a WESTERN MEADOWLARK which perched on the telephone wires for a couple of minutes was more of a surprise.
