A quiet morning, sunny and still. I got there a little before 8:00 and soon was joined by several other birders. The highlight was a Wilson's Warbler in the Alanthus in the lower garden, perhaps the same bird as was reported recently. The Red-shouldered Hawk seems to be back. I recorded it pretty consistently between October 17 and December 23 last year.
