Also, the hotel had an amazing little field in the behind our room where an early morning hike yielded some great birds. Western Scrub Jay, Steller’s Jay and Song Sparrows were all noisily watching an American Kestrel perched on a fence post. White-crowned Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, California Towhee, and a new life bird, Spotted Towhee all fed in and around the shrubs. Amazing way to start the morning. A quick drive to the GG Bridge overlook and we found a hawkwatch in progress. The girls manning the station didn’t seem too knowledgeable but while there, Red-tailed Hawk and Sharp-shinned Hawk flew by.
